Wondering star

by Michael   Jan 8, 2019


I imagine.

I am a star,
wandering on
a cliff edge.


deciding whether
to fall, or not.

If I did choose
to fall, at least you
would still be
able to see me

wouldn’t you.

    The romantic in me sees a sad love story here. And it tells a tell of someone who for long has guarded his heart; close only that special one. But when the time arrived and he presented his love a plater of gold his heart got crushed by the one he truly love???? That's the beauty of good poetry; we see what we want to see???????????? Good job Michael, or is it Arch Angel Michael: the shining wandering star. Lol

    I like you write some 'oddities' they are, after all, the gems.
    Nice work, as always. Peace :O)

    The thought of such a star falling off a cliff would be a devastating loss. Stars are meant to twinkle and share thier beauty with the World. Milly x

    Yes, being a star would certainly make you more noticeable, Michael, but not necessarily better. The greatest heroes, after all, are the quiet, unsung ones.

    Take care and stay well,

      I agree Ben, i write some oddities at times, and this one reflects on all the stars that have died in the universe, we are still able to see them now :)
