catch me, if you can

nobody
catches
a falling
star,
they see
and wish on it
their troubles
away,

maybe
it does oblige
and take
their weight away,
for those who fall
seldom wish
the same
on others,

the sky however
remains as
bejeweled
as ever,
the eyes
go back
to what can
be beheld,

but nobody
catches
a falling
star.
