Ever sat staring at a star, and realised it's just a plane?
It can be heartbreaking,
you were never looking at a star, and you're not looking at a plane right now
It's every painful realisation in your life manifested in a few grains of light.
Just as a small fish will follow a trace of bobbing light
Thinking its next meal is a few fin flicks away
when it finds itself in the mouth of something bigger.
Then, it's all over.
