Like an Eyelash in my Eye

Little star, nebulous 
You stay far outside of my reach
Lofty and twinkling
You were the light of my dreams
Cloudy nights, out of sight
Hide tearless eyes behind dark glasses
Missed chance left me behind
Not really sure it was mine
Everyone knows who you are
Your fame is bigger than who I
Had gotten used to
They carry pieces of you home
Worship your ghost on their smartphones
And they pay to see you
When I never see you

I broke the social script
Blurted out how mad I felt about you
Intrusive thoughts I said yes to
You’re still a mystery to me
How I wonder — did you forget me?
I’m still here baking and I’m still happy
Croissants and a cup of tea
Nothing but crumbs on your shirt
I pretend I don’t know who you are
Too cool to admit I fell hard
Now I never see you
I’m quite all right on my own
Got no one waiting at home
I don’t need to see you

A whole world screaming your name
Your every move in spotlights
While they pay to see you
I’m here scrolling through endless TikToks
Watching you shine through their eyes
But I still can't see you
I never see you

I bake. I write. What goes better together than a good story and a delicious fresh-baked pastry? Nothing. And I can give you both. Grab a hot cuppa and join me.
