Written in the Stars

We end where we ought to have started,

You and I,

We start where we ought to have stopped,

You and I,

And when the world feels just right, we stir up trouble,

“Who were you chatting up at midnight?”

“What do you mean chatting up? I was asleep…”

“I was on WhatsApp and you were online…”

“Yes, just because I am connected to the internet, it does not mean that I am actively engaging with people on my phone.”

“Yeah, that’s what you all say…”

I hang up and sip my coffee,

Listen to a song or two, hold my breath, feel the beating of my heart.

You call and call until I give my phone a much needed break ‘airplane mode,’

You and I,

Oh, how is it that an action amplifies one person into a multitude,

You and I…like on such a night,

I feel like we are written in the stars, but we strive to prove the universe different,

Yet here we are…written in the stars.
