Unreachable


“Unreachable”

The moon shines in the sky so bright

as I sit in this sacred place,

My head looks up to the stars on this night

they spill their light on my solemn face.

Sadness takes over from the depths of my soul

as I look at the sky above,

For in that sky, so dark and so big

lie the beautiful stars that I love.

I reach so far with all that I have

to catch a star so bright,

Despite my efforts I can never reach it

I will never touch its beautiful light.

Once again, I will settle for

simply gazing at my hearts desire,

But when the night is gone and time is up

my tears will burn like fire.

I can not tell the stars of my pain

my secret will always burn my soul,

If I tell them what I think,

they will shy away and hide their magnificent glow.

Still gazing up through watery eyes

I blink away a heavy tear,

I’ll not tell my stars of my feelings for them

instead, I will live in fear.

Because seeing them some is better than

not seeing them at all,

But as long as my stars shine down on me

I will feel so very small.

Blessed be friends,

Megan

  6. beautiful… love the line “f I tell them what I think, they will shy away and hide their magnificent glow.” How many of us are afraid the universe will shrink away from us if it could see what we really thought. Confusion and self-deprecation take over. And we swallow our pain. Or pain is pushed down. And we walk out to face the day.
