when stars break

I saw a broken star tonight,
shards of light
scattering through emptiness
before fading into non-existence.

I thought of making a wish,
but that’s only for shooting stars;
even wishes cannot hope
to mend a broken heart.

    O, darling Mims, this piece has me battered, shattered and scattered. You touched the heart; therefore, you hit the mark. 🙂
