Wish Upon a Star

A sorta Sonnet

Wish Upon a Star

Dangerously waking too close to the edge now -

glad I didn’t fall.

Hope my silence doesn’t wake you,

as I readjust my wall.


The dreams were all consuming,

but the nightmares left a mess.

If my sleep-talk doesn’t frighten you -

in the dark, I will confess.


Tonight, might be the death of me,

or maybe I can soar,

if you’ll catch me from my swan dive

like you did before.


Maybe tonight once more I’ll fly ,

through the beautiful light of a star-lit sky.

Thank you for reading! Make a wish …
