Short Poems

Dark Star

There is a dark star that glows within me, I say glows, I mean dwells, lives, feeds off light, waits for light, listens for promises to break, love to ignore, laughter to choke.
It lays in wait to see smiles to smash, the look of love, to laugh at it and beauty to defile.
It sucks in feelings of joy, peace, contentment and future desires.
It crushes the hand that touches in gentle love, bites the lips that kisses and repels the hugs of hope.
