NaPoWriMo 2019 – Day 14

Tossing Stars

Tossing stars over my shoulder
To make oceans fall away
Into my arms insincere of
Their intense devotion
Fickle at best we do kiss
Through shadowed veils
You cannot explain the difference
Though I did ask more than once
More we strive to be something
To everything and nothing at all
Even friends we are not
Tossing stars over my shoulder
To make oceans fall away
Into my voice’s growls dying
To break free from prisons
Stars only lashed it to
Covering up and lifting it up
An offering to gods that spat
On its very notion of being
Tossing stars over my shoulder
To make oceans fall away
