Fallen Star



Fallen Star

Beneath a fallen star
from black velvet of night
wish not for what ye may perceive
suppressed
in a woven fashion of woes
which might bite
upon hearts that bleed

Loose love filled
with tones of tilts
and jags from wails
of blackened sough's breath
cry out within the darken veins
of fallen stars
as paths
overlie in death

Upon the shores of skies end
lit by magic of night's moon
from the fallen star shadow
does quake
within the will of man
for the trembling
of a woman's given hand

For the ashes
which pass within the fallen star
give reason to sanities closure
as dust surpasses thy eyes
in the return of heart
to wanting arms
in betrayal of darken coal

Heed not the wish of stars
that lead in the approach to love
for the holding twines thy own hearts
from shooting stars falling
endlessly
from the heaven's above

IntroductionForgotten are the times the tick of a clock once chimed sobering sounds that caressed my hearts nightly dreams. As I awaken to the touch of light that burns upon a candles wick flickering my words for all to see. This drives my thoughts through the darkest of nights of loneliness that renders my quill upon parchment with ink that dances to minds and souls.Now I hear the screeching of my heart when the blue horizon covers the orb of emptiness.Within the shelter of my mind with little, purpose other than my words that keep me sane. These are my new poems I have written in the quiet of my night, forever wished away in a writer’s pain. As I strive to write that perfect poem that, my soul desperately seeks. Then and only then can my words rest upon a sleep. more…
