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

Fandango’s Friday Flashback – May 22

(I am about 2 hours past Friday but shhh, no one will notice.)

This week for Fandango’s Friday Flashback (FFF) we are going back to 2017 to this post for the daily prompt unmoored…

 

Castles In The Air

My hopes become unmoored

Along the sea of dreams,

To set sail on the night sky.

Drifting between the stars,

They trail down the milky way

Chasing comet tails.

They are searching for their destiny –

A vision in the darkness,

Of fantasy and wishes.

Glitter

If glitter was like fairy dust

I could grant a million wishes

Just pop in to my local craft store

And gather dreams by the arm load

You wouldn’t struggle anymore

And maybe I could dance again

The world would be safe and sparkly

But glitter gets lost in the wind

And hopes are dashed by reality

If only glitter was like fairy dust

Your pixie I would be…

Cling To Me

Inside there is a scared child

One who clings to dreams

Who is afraid of failure

And painfully lonely times

 

She clings to hopes of happiness

But cowers in fear of change

She has been pushed down for years

And tries to stay within the shadows

 

But now I choose to take her hand

And help her see her wishes achieved

She can cling to me in trust

For I know just what she needs
