A Star That Never Shine

I believe in love at first sight do you agree?

The woman I see can unlock my heart without a key.

Being around her is where I want to be.

Sometimes I want to attach my eyes in her mind to see if she's thinking of me.

I never saw a shooting star but I made a wish in my mind.

A wish to one day marry this woman but I did made a wish to the star that never shine.

She be my wifey type and number one fan.

Like the statue of liberty her beauty stands.

My love for her she wouldn't understand.

And if she ever had a broken heart I'll take mines out my chest and place it in her hands.

In my eyes she's queen with a smile that's keeps shining.

Royalty runs her in blood because if I ever cut her skin, she'll bleed diamonds.

Someday I want a child from her at least one,

And I'll make war with the sky so I can fight for a son.

When see hurt, I feel like my heart start to break and my earth shake.

If I was God I'll let rain fall on her so she can feel my tears streaming down her face.

Her pain flows through my mind like a boat flowing through the ocean,

Because I watched dudes put her heart in a video game and played with her emotions.

I know the men treated her bad in the past and she still has the scars today,

And I know where I'm at is far away.

But when I see her, my lips will be the lips of healing kissing her scars away.

I long to kiss her and long to touch her,

How big my heart has to be to show that I love her.

I've been around her for so long I know everything about her.

And like oxygen I can't breathe without her.

But the one I loved killed herself by slitting her wrist,

And I'm more frustrated because I made a wish on a star that never shine because that star was a death wish.

And I'm more pist because I never told her how I felt.

She wasn't my girlfriend but I wish I would of told her instead of keeping it to myself.

I loved her and wanted to make her mines.

But I made a wish to the wrong star. A star that never shined.

      What sublime art this is in front of me! The poem of bereft madness... loved and lost

      Love is not to be kept to the self... Express it... let it out or it will burst inside and curse you.....

      I am in awe with this piece of narrative poetry... the pain it carries... stabs me hard...

      Maurice-I disagree with the others about breaking the lines up. I think it reads as you would say a rap. It runs together and it flows that way.

      Whatever... (smile) to each his own.

      Beautiful and sensitive feelings you've shared.

      just a little advice, you should break up ypur lines. they will be easier to read and make more sense it gives it a better apeal to the reader as to poetry and not a story.
