Pretty Please

She saw the star

Shoot across the sky

Closing her eyes

She made a wish

A wish of hope

That she would

Find him soon

The one true one

Who’d treat her right

The modicum of belief

She held for

Wishing on stars

Was all she had

to battle back

her overwhelming

Feelings of doubt

She had tried

Every superstition

Of luck she knew

She crossed her fingers

She rubbed a lucky penny

Found a four leaf clover

Wished on the first star

Nothing worked

She sighed and

Turned to go inside

Another day over

Another day alone


Written for Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (FOWC) – modicum
