Power surged beneath my skin,
and in the silence, I heard myself thrum.
I used to be fire.
I burned bright inside, stellar lungs,
and in the cold, I sang myself warm.
Still and dark.
My stone sinews crack.

Asteroid dust, floating.

you are there with me.
When my heart breaks,
when my ground shakes,
you hold my hand,
and walk by me through the sand.

not shorebound and
they're gray like the steelbellied sea itself
like the horizon at dawn as it
hems you into an impossibly vast canvas
like a demarcation line
or a promise.
one you always chased.
maybe i had a streak of ocea

You cannot see,
What is it
You ask of me?
just once they say,
can guide your way
etched within your mind,
Take my heart
and you will find
You're safe for all eternity
What was it you asked of me?
