we love the downfall.
we sail a thousand islands, knowing
our ships are capable of being swallowed by the ocean.
some of us see the lighthouse,
some of us die seeing the lighthouse.
we fly to the stars, knowing
our rockets are capable of being abandoned by gravity.
some of us reach the moon,
some of us die with the sun.
we give pieces of ourselves to others, knowing
our hearts are capable of being broken by everyone.
some of us receive happiness,
some of us die despite happiness.
we are doomed to love downfalls,
but maybe we love the climb to the brink
more than the freefall.
