Be A Staunch Star

Standard

Beyond chaos,

Distant from noise.

Dusk dulls the edges,

A lone star gives light.

 

A close. Some silence.

An evaluation here and there.

Anticipation and apprehension in parts,

What brings tomorrow?

Rest now though.

Let the day go.

It’s not an end.

Just a pause on the bend.

 

Remember the graceful goodbye,

The staunchly shining star.

You decide your tomorrow,

You carve your path.

Where do the stray pieces go?

The ones that don’t make it to the fore?

The ones who barely scrape through,

Between the shackles of life?

Those who escape sweeping brooms

Who fall off trucks in darkness and gloom?

Others still who get blown away

Those scraps of paper that fall away

Spare buttons that fall off

The post its with hearts

The fallen leaves of autumn that flit aside

Do they find their whole?

The lines they missed

A way to get through

Do they perish un-claimed

Or huddle in crevices staring away

Watch the world go by

Or do they find their groove.

Their light

Their flight.

Their places of delight.

Image of A Broken Heart

Leaden skies.
Birds flung about.
Trees bent double with the weight.
Water cascading faster than it can be drained.

A heavy heart.
Incapable of speech.
Unable even to scream in agony.

Scattered thoughts.
Overwrought.
Craving release.

Staring eyes.
Dry eyed and blank.
Unseeing.
Yearning to shed.

The being seeks oblivion.
Solace from constant endurance.
Fatigued with incessant hurt.
Longs to heal.
Longs to be whole.
