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.
you must’ve traveled through,
the volcanic debris
that must’ve caked your Uranian eyes,
the acidic blood
that must’ve charred your soles,
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.
