~  He Who Flys  ~

So many stars above me
vibrant, shining in the night -
Yet not one to grant my wish,
I wish I may, I wish I might...

* * * * * * * *

"Oh God", I cry out to the sky -
"Please make it go away,
this longing that I have to catch
a shooting star..." I pray.

Every night he seems so close
I feel him flying by -
I stretch, he's barely out of reach
I fight back tears and sigh...

Retrieving once again, my hand
I open it to see -
the emptiness I hold instead,
of he who flys o'er me...

Oh PoetFemme    this is just lovely.
One day that star will be in your grasp.
They say all good things are worth waiting

Your poem flows beautifully with desires of something so close, yet far away. You portrayed these images wonderfully. I thoroughly enjoyed this PoetFemme!

"WELCOME TO MY WORLD"  *smile*

*sigh*...oh yes...know it well...
but we must try to remember...
falling stars burn our hands and our hearts...
as a shooting star is burning out on its way down...
but damn do I love the intensity of the heat.
*smile*
beautiful poem of longing my girl...
very nice.

 It's amazing
How you make your face just like a wall
How you take your heart and turn it off
How I turn my head and you lose it all ...
And it's unnerving
How one move just puts me by myself
There you go just trusting someone else
Now I know I put us both through hell ...
I'm not sayin
That there was nothing wrong
I just didn't think you'd ever get tired of me
And I'm not sayin
We ever had the right to hold on
I just didn't wanna let you get away from me.

I think I'm going to use one of these "Find out anything about anyone" deals I keep seeing advertized, and get your address... Then find someone to drop me out of a plane over your house one night...  I'll wait until after I get the green contacts though.  

DEFFINITELY and impressive entrance.  

Oh, did I mention how awesome your poem was? =)

Brief glimmers draw us but kindled flame will keep us warm....Here's hoping your glimmer has more heat than that of a fleating star...

Really beautiful.  A wonderful expression.
