She Will Go On Wishing

She Will Go On Wishing

A Poem by imagination101


















She gazes upon dancing stars

Melancholy eyes wish for him

A heart yearns to be in his

embraceable love

Days where she felt full,

but now empty


Each night she is lured to the sky

Head tilts back

Eyes closed

Mouth whispers wishes of hope


She watches the stars shimmer across

the canopy sky

Wonders if he is under the same stary night, or is he miles away making a wish for her this night?


He has moved on

Where she does not know

Took her heart as a souvenir

Left his memories behind


As dusk turns to day,

another sleepless night fades

A smile fakes her lips

Pretends the pain is gone

life is okay, but in reality she

waits for darkness to magically reappear

so she can go on wishing for him

A lovely piece full of love and emotion! It flows well and has a strong hold on how I'm sure many people have truly felt during their lifetime. Thank you.

Wow, heart-wrenching write. Especially the part about faking a smile and waiting for darkness.

I really like this piece. It captures emotions and the imagery is wonderful. It flows and it is coherent.

And I bet she dreams of him every night. I bet she wishes he would come and rescue her from her dreams so she can be held by him again. I bet if he could hear her wishes and see her dreams He never would have left. But then he had no choice I bet. He gave that up when he signed his name on the admit forms for the military.
