"I want to be a Renaissance woman. I want to paint, and I want to write, and I want to act, and I want to just do everything." --Emma Watson

My legs have turned to lead
And my heart, it seems, is wooden;
My dreams are now all dead
And I really shouldn’t
Try to star-wish anymore
Now that the moon is hid,
Though that’s what night-time’s for,
For hopes whispered amid
The constellations faint
And the inky blue forever--
Shown too little and too late,
You were never mine to treasure.

The first two lines popped into my head weeks ago, and I finally developed them into a poem.  The entire thing is actually just one sentence (huzzah, puncuation!).
