A Carpet of Sprinkled Stars

A Carpet of Sprinkled Stars.

1.

There is solace to be found,
amongst the midnight shadows,

with,

stars embroidered on the carpet of night,

offering comfort,
to my tattered heart,

that seeks only stillness,
as cryptic day retreats.

2.

My wandering mind,
shuffles silently,

massaging the cacophony of today to rest,

while bound wings are unshackled,

and memories, hopes, aspirations,

spread their wings and take flight.

3.

A cascade of nostalgia,
bathes my jangled nerves,

hewn into the creases,
of a lifetime of crumbling hope,

perennially awash with renewed promise,

as I brace for the onslaught,
of another tomorrow.

4.

I feel my thoughts, my hopes, my dreams of love,

kicking the dust,
taking flight,

gliding high,
surfing the clouds,

in a boundless moonlit sky.

5.

Hope defying all constraints,

free,

coasting along the carpet of night,
sprinkled with stars,

breaking all restraints,

free,

of all shackles,
floating through my caged bars.

6.

Memories wash up against my being,

teasing infinite regrets out of their lair,

afloat on a waking dream,

moonbeams streaming through the midnight air.

7.

However lost my yesterdays may seem,

tomorrow offers slivers of hope,

my task is simple,
my wishes the least extravagant,

my desires plain,

wishing to banish all gaudy thoughts,

hoping to cast-off,
this lingering pain.

8.

Cleansed by the soft moonlight,

my back resting gently,

on the carpet of sprinkled stars,

knowing this to be but a dream,

I hold onto each moment of freedom,

while revelling in the soft light,

of a solitary moonbeam.

9.

My reverie is broken,

yet my dream remains true,

of holding you in my arms,

resting on a carpet,
sprinkled with stars,

for my heart no longer resides within me,

my heart has been given,

to my truest love,

my heart now rests with you.

10.

The night slowly begins to fade,

morning mere moments away,

I cling on, cradling you in my thoughts,

you give me the strength,

to endure,

another lonesome day.
