Written In the Stars

Cosmic cross (astrology)

They said that we were written in the stars
Something to do with Venus conjunct Mars
Celestial union born from just a glance
Deeper meanings full of relevance

They said above us Heaven must have smiled
Bid us linger together here awhile
Walk our journey joined here hand in hand
Just as spirits and angels must have planned


But our efforts here have run aground
See our fate has proven too unsound
Out of union all this pain arose
Made us question loyalties we chose
Deeper the hurt when deeper the belief
Making our time seem shadowy, a thief
And you wonder what games they can play
When our dreams all wither, go astray?


What was hidden in celestial form
When from nothing such a dream was born?
What aspects hidden deeper in the night
To take a false flame and set it so alight?

And Heaven’s smile must just precede their laugh
We the sacrifice, poor unwitting calf
Just pawns here for bored deities to play
Before they wash our hearts and dreams away

  1. Hi Helen, I love that you have written a variant in the middle of the poem, for me that increases the tension, intensifies the poem. Well done.

  2. You’re on fire today. Your poems are always very good, but these really strike me. 🙂
