I Don'T Wish On Stars, I Wish On Razor Blades - Poem by Gemma O' Hanlon

I stare out the window,
But my view is obscured by bricks.
I don't see the stars tonight,
All I see are sharpened blades around me.

THESE are my wishing stars.

Oh, please let me wish upon you;
My blood will be the sacrifice,
My satisfaction will be the gift.
So let me wish on you tonight.

The first star has faded,
So I'll throw it aside,
A second star will come to me,
So I can make a wish.

One star thrown aside,
Two stars faded away,
Three stars that have given me hope,
Four stars that I have wished upon.

Please don't take my stars
Away from me, I still have
A few more wishes to make
On them...

    This is really a sharp poem like razors, Gemma. Keep staring out the windows of your words, you will see the real stars of your wishes one night. The title is very catchy. Please keep writing.
    Best Wishes.
