sometimes i wonder if i am a star.

heatless star

sometimes i wonder

if i am a star.

destined to burn

and

burn

till there's nothing left

for the fires

for the fires of my ravenous mind

for the fires of my ravenous mind to consume.

the memories

his memories

horrid things

horrid things that have always haunted me

they give the fire its fuel

he took

he took what I needed

he took what I needed to survive

my happiness

my dignity

my innocence

he took all of it

he took all of it and he threw it away

he

he watched

he watched it

he watched it burn

then he filled the holes

in the absence

in the absence of my sanity

with flashbacks

with whispers

with

with himself.

he's here.

he's always here.

he won't leave.

if i am a star,

are you far enough away

to see my light?

to see my light? does my dying light still reach your eyes?

or did you watch in horror that day

as he stole the glow

from my three-year-old heart?

suddenly, i was not ablaze

my fire still hurts

it still burns

but it has ceased to produce light

but it has ceased to produce light or heat.

now

it is just a heatless fire.

he leaves me

he leaves me singed

he leaves me singed and

he leaves me singed and freezing.
