The stars

The stars

A Poem by Threads

Our stars are ever so far away

The midnight moon wanes

Our thoughts, today they delay

The dream it remains

 

We admire their glow in the distance

Like fireflies their essence is that of magic

In their distant perfection we resign

if not to take the moment in dance

why behold a thing so tragic;

or benign

 

My star is ever so far away

The tides still linger

My thoughts, today they delay

The memory is bigger

 

When you feel the stars are finally close enough to touch,

they shrink back to the distance

From that safe distance we look at each other in wonder

to ponder

of how a thing can be, to such,

perfection by our eyes in existence

of this endless persistence, which would be better to not

be

My star is ever so far away
The tides still linger
My thoughts, today they delay
The memory is bigger

I enjoyed this part of your write,
nicely written and thought out.

This might be my favorite poem thus far. I always loved the topic of stars in poems, since they're always far away and we can talk about them.

"My star is ever so far away
The tides still linger
My thoughts, today they delay
The memory is bigger"

I remember a song that held this thought and it made me quite sad, but the way you presented it was like giving hope of a new beginning and letting these little moments grow to a big super nova or something.

"When you feel the stars are finally close enough to touch,

I love reading about stars. I liked the vivid imagery here. I like the comparision of stars with fireflies. Thank you for sharing. It took me to a world of stars and imagination. ☺
