Stars, light brilliance
a gift , an obligation to shine
deep brown pools of endless feelings
have their own glow
they sit close to one another
warm in the familiar breath they share.
blood shed her color of tears, binding
them, invisible threads sewing their dignity
remindful of vintage from a sadder place,
crippled by thoughtlessness.
star light, star bright........
