starseeds (a duet): part i

she sat curled ball tight
fright of her light
and her shadow
all consuming
her
.
.
.
waits for light to fade
affliction made
her wants, desire
pulled towards the
sky
.
.
.
desire can wait another day
no need to rush
this place protects
her, she stays
safe
.
.
.
yet her eyes are called
to gaze beyond
the nearest stars
farther, farther
out
.
.
.
her fears chain her
to the pea-sized
existence which she
is so afraid to
leave
.
.
.
gravity holds her down
too great the pull
her soul weeps
for the truth to
release
.
.
.
deciding finally to break free
from this, her shell
self-imposed hell,
left, now found
seeking
.
.
.
the life inside growing
a seed that sprouts
a new beginning
her mind now
reeling
.
.
.
her brave new world,
filled with color and
wonder, yet she
still felt so all
alone
.
.
.
a flash vision,
spiked her senses
she felt his touch
like being
home
.
.
.
