Joseph’s Star: A Love Story

This poem is a part of the poetic ‘scavenger hunt’ designed by @murisopsis from A Different Perspective. This time the theme is Names, as in poetic forms that feature a name (e.g. one of the prompts is to write a poem in the form of “Amandas Pinch” — a form I’ve personally never heard of before). There are thirteen prompts in total so this is more manageable then a daily commitment challenge. Check out all the prompts and the way it works here and join in if your up for some poetic puzzling. Enjoy!

Prompt 11

Write a Joseph’s Star poem or write a poem with the words: super, technicolor, coat, stars.

A Love Story

Sits before
Me with her heart broke,
Yearning for love’s innocence
Now shattered by the jagged
Reality of

Lays before
Me with her heart torn;
I try to mend it with the
Frayed thread of old promises
But love unravels
Faster than I can

Our love dies
She lifts herself up
With the strength of her own wings,
And rises to catch the fresh
Currents of new life

She soars in
The blue sky above
Through the clouds so graceful
I can’t help but smile for her
And shed a tear for

Be well,

    So very poignant! The mark of true love that one is willing to sacrifice personal happiness for another to realize their own bliss!
