I named it and posted it.

The Hidden Star

Searching for the infinite

Reaching for the stars

Reading the inscriptions

Written on whiskey jars


Parasail over the oceans

Flights full of failing dreams

Alight upon the island

Of sirens and their screams


Pardon my indescritions

Excuse my faltering muse

Personal transgressions

Are all I have to lose


Knelling on the alter

Of regret and solace ease

Help  me to connect these

Dots of puzzles, please


All I have to offer

Is the person who I am

This simple vessel of confession

Is laid bare without a lamb


Secrets of this silent ship

Sailing across life's seas

Without the compass of direction

Adrift in murky seas


Look inside the carnal shell

And find the pearl of who you are

I am the mirror of the soul

The flame of your hidden star
