Aglow

*Touched up this poem- original can be seen earlier on the blog*
 
Swept the stars into my hands,

Saw radiant diamonds against

My lackluster flesh.

They nest against me, burrow inside,

‘Til they’ve blinked out of sight.

I’ll chance to let them enter

The carefully concealed

Corners of my heart,

Open to their clever little tricks.

Maybe their brilliance will bring

A glow to my skin and a fire in my eyes.

Sharp-witted and strong,

I’ll burn so much brighter,

Dream so much bigger

Captivate any who pass by,

With stars burning deep, down inside.
