key to the willow pt V

and he sat
on the north star
with tears
on his cheeks
like diamonds
catching the errant light
of passing comets

he could not see
but he felt
a tugging
in his soul

he watched
with strained vision
for the thing
that sent shivers
through him
knowing it wasn’t
just the cold
of space
on his skin
but the need
for something

  1. Hi, Mike. Thanks for sharing such a beautfully well penned poem. Love the imagery and melancholic feel of the narrative. Have reblogged. Happy Tuesday. Have a great day. Goff
