I Once Cried To Be Stardust In Your Eyes

I Once Cried To Be Stardust In Your Eyes I once cried to be stardust in your eyes, lighting your tender heart with heavenly glow as treasure to you, fallen from bright skies for blessed kindness, sweet love you would sow; yet such gift was simply never to be my passionate embrace you never felt I sorrowed alone in my empty sea while upon gold altar of fame you knelt. Tis this great burden I must stalwart bear for in my fear I dared not pursue a goddess of beauty and raven hair, more I feared, farther away you flew. I once cried to be stardust in your eyes. As treasure to you, fallen from bright skies. Robert J. Lindley, 6-23-2020 Sonnet, ( The Many Sorrowing Paths That Fate Spins ) Note: 6/23/2020 This was originally written for a contest. I never entered it because it became a sonnet instead of the seven verse as required by the contest stipulation. I simply could not bear to shorten it..

Thank you my friend. Truly the wonderful verses you just gave in reply are definitely fodder for a poem that I think you should perhaps consider doing. As it would be a very fine offering, imho.. God bless...

Imust give credit to Nette's contest as its concept and its 7 verse rule intrigued me- but as of occurs I simply can not stop the verse flow coming. In this case , it doubled her 7 verse count required and I simply could not cut any verses.
