heart of stars

heart of stars

hearts, like stars
can shine so bright
they pierce us all
with clearer sight

slender rays
of hopeful light
to illuminate
souls blackest night

the wings of faith
and dreams take flight
to soar as passion
reignites

hearts, like stars
can shine so bright
long after
they are dead inside

and I have to say that it's always interesting when readers get something totally intended out of my work....this really about heartbreak - and giving what you never get.

When you choose to shine, you do it better than anyone else. 10 from me

well then, I'll just have to choose to shine more often. Thank you for taking time to read - you know I appreciate it. BTW - I'm testing your theory here :)

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
