heartbreak and rebirth

in the stars

January 4th, 2019

I gave birth to time itself.

my mind my soul my heart my spark
was created in the Great Collapse
and I
have been restless ever since.

I am aware, brutally, of our
impermanence, and my bones break
and my blood freezes
in its midst.
my love is a scream unto
the vastness of the stars,
searching for its birthplace,
desperate as I.
I cling to those who are
drawn to me,
pull them against my breast
and pray they will stay
(though they are incapable.)

I am aware, brutally, that I
fell in love with a vessel for the light
who left me in the dark.
I am aware, brutally, of the irony
of this, and of
it’s tragic source.

I gave birth to time itself, damn it,
and the darkness will be drowned
by the fire at my fingertips,
and the King of Coins may be a vessel,
but I am light itself.

at seventeen,
I am as old as the stars.

at seventeen,
I will return to them.

I have missed your poetry so

I have missed your poetry so so so much and yet nothing prepared me for how beautiful and heartbreaking this poem was. I'm at a loss for words to describe how close to my soul this went and it is a true work of art. (It's also faved, but anyways...)
Ily and I love this poem <33

Wow, it's been so long since

Wow, it's been so long since I've seen you on kp (maybe I just haven't been paying attention) and honestly, 20/10 post. This poem is gorgeous.
