I Remember (poem) 💙

By being with you,
I forget fear,
Forget about the black oceans
that chase after my breath and jubilant emotions,
About the black hole that demands my soul,
The inner critic that only spews bitter winter,
Storm clouds that stalk me like blood hounds,
Thorn bushes that beg for me to worship them,
adorn my heart with them.
Tidal waves whose shadows darken my days.

By being with you,
I remember the innermost me,
The sunbeam me,
The celestial succubus me,
The self that is a living heaven despite Hell’s persistent spell.

I remember that I’m not those dying embers;
I’m the blue hue in a growing fire.

I now know that we don’t fall in love, we soar.
The only direction you take me is
higher and higher.
In rediscovering my inner peace
through you,
I forgot my 28-year inner war.

Spiral Galaxy Arms 🌌 (poem)

Your spiral galaxy arms hold me
like crust encapsulates Earth’s core,
and suddenly, I remember
the trillions of stars that I am.

Starlust Hymns (micro poem) ✨

Stardust limbs and heart,
Love every inch seen, unseen.
Starlust hymns and work of art…
What you are.

Livewire (poem) ✨💖

Brightspark, you plunged head-first into my chest cavity
and poured starshine into my heart-craters long-frozen-over,
turning stagnant nebula to newly-birthed sun.

Oh,
the typhoons
you must’ve traveled through,

the volcanic debris
that must’ve caked your Uranian eyes,

the acidic blood
that must’ve charred your soles,

the veins
that must’ve tangled and constricted your torso
like starving boas.

And here you are, Brightspark,
burning brighter than ever before.

How brave you are.

But you tell me I’m even braver
for opening my chamber’s door once more.

Now, I take on this torch and rekindled bravery—
And this eternal light you’ve given me,
I’ll continually pour forth forevermore.
