Fallen Stars

written by: odonko-ba

What are fallen stars?
Are they
Faded dreams
Disappointments
Streaking across the night sky?
Resoundingly repeating and reminding us of our failures or
Are they
The gaiety of children
Running amuck amongst the planets
Causing mischief and mayhem?

Could it be
That they are missives just for me
Of a love Waiting patiently?

A love
I have yet to find divine
Tangible
A love all mine

Could fallen stars be
Tears of a broken heart
Broken once too many
Or love sabotaged?

For you see
I have yet to find
My true love

But in searching
I have drowned...
In many a
Mirage

I might not be the smartest apple to fall from the tree but believe me, the resonance of my impact resoundingly reverberates the tree stirring emotions and messaging egos in quiet retribution. I am a moody anti-social introvert. Meaning: I Trust No One. My best friend is myself. My companion ~ my dog.
I write because I must. It is my life-line. My Beacon in a world cloaked in darkness, steadfast upon destruction, blinded by their own selfish needs...I write because I must, to maintain my sanity in an otherwise insane world.
Welcome to my humble sanctum
