Untitled # 2

I touched a star

It burned my skin

Layer by layer

To the bones within

*****

I touched a star

Before it took flight

And flashed its tail

Through the onyx of night

*****

I touched a star

With word after word

For if it were true

It would be quite absurd

*****

I touched a star

With just a sad thought

To free my subconscious

From the fights I have  fought

*****

I touched a star

Then hovered around it

Refreshed by its joy

And truly astounded

*****

I touched a star

Then found my way home

And to honor its beauty

I surrender this poem

    Caroline – Wow! I’m truly humbled by your words. They mean so much. You know this was a bit tricky for me, and still is. Everyday I get a little more relaxed about it. Your continued encouragement is helping. Thank you. Love and smooch. 🙂

    LOVE IT. Simply cannot say how much talent you have – see if I could express that – I too might be writer (or poet if in verse), but all I can say is that you my dear friend are supremely talented, and I am just grateful that have chosen to share your wonderful talents with us. I love this one, it is – well awesome.
