one day i became the stars

outlined in the sky

stardust coated my skin

my lips

my lashes

it turned my hair to silver

and then

the deepest black.

glistening silver teardrops

gliding down my cheek


against my lips

like water from a creek.

sweet winds released me

from my hollow cage

and blew me up

and out and in.

i saw diamonds and glass and ice,

falling in the lonely winds.

and as i flew

free and blind

i wondered if life

had ever been so kind.
