Starlight

#FromOneLine ☆  Friday Challenge  ☆

If anyone had been watching
The stars are brighter tonight
They sway in sparkly hammocks
To tunes of whispered cries
Wish upon a star, they said
For dreams can be fulfilled
By twinkly drops of cosmic light;
I, too, looked up at the brilliance
To catch a truant starling in flight
My pleas fizzled in its fiery demise;
I turned away, sad, despondent
But I found it in my pocket.

Longing

#FromOneLine ☆  Friday Challenge  ☆

I opened my eyes
To the blazing starlights
Wrapped in reveries of love
That once was wild and young
Now succumbed to words
Creating a yawning cavern
With unbridled harshness
No bridge to cover the distance;
That wayward moment beckons
With melting goodbyes
To let go of all the gripe
Follow the beloved
Where the paths diverted,
And in that sleepless night
I heard the creak of longing –
There was one shoe on the step
