-Just a little something I came up with at a neighbor's party. I actually wrote this down with an orange crayon on a page ripped out from a toddler's coloring book. Hope he doesn't mind-


I dreamed I was among the stars,
Rising above the earthly scars.

Quietly in my pod I rested,
A twinkling god not to be bested....

Invited to the cosmos chant,
I agreed, trying hard not to vant.

Singing along with my star friends,
We set the universal trend.

Our celestial music soared above all,
Letting others take the fall.

On one side I felt the glory of the triumph,
The other me calling "Traitor nymph!"

Thus came the impede,
Guilt sought me to recede.

Hence I gave my consent-
With the slightest bit of repent.

Not saying good-bye,
I left, tears in my would-be eyes.

Silently, down I drifted,
To the clan from I had once shifted.

Just another fallen star weeping in solitude..

-Review please. By the way, vant means vaunt, just in case you might not know-

It's okay, though it tries too hard to be literary at times. The fact that you wrote it in crayon is great -- I must try that soemday, see if it affects my writing at all! lol.

The last line really stands out, by the way. I appreciated that an awful lot -- especially since I can never come up with such fun metaphors (maybe I have an odd sense of fun . . .)

Lovely poem
I think it's nice,the last line is a great ending. The only word that seemed odd, was 'bested' I'd say 'tested' is better.
I'll rate it a 10 though still. Very nice! :)

Fallen Star, Really
Imaginative, drifting to other worlds.
Romantic, gazing at the sky.
Tender, grinning inwardly.
Words fall short, you are really fallen star that has a cryptic rupture.
