scrap paper

scrap paper
i wanna set it alight

i wanna drive into the sunset, full speed
and sink into the cobalt blue

shoot like a star
an asteroid falling
from heaven
down to earth

dissolving into dust
for a fleeting moment of beauty
before returning to the void

a grain of salt in the sea
washed up on the shore
lost in the sands of time

drowning in your embrace
lament for my death
rotting corpse of grief

yet i love the darkness
the depth of the ocean

the space in which the cosmos shines
like luminous beings
dancing to the tune
of a galactic xylophone

yet i feel like a scrap piece of paper
with the weight of these words
