I touched the sun in innocence
unaware it would touch me
Consume me body and soul
as I fell, trailing comet tails
back to earth.

I stole the fire. The fire stole me.
The fire stole me. I stole the fire.

Nothing on earth
Tastes like the sun.
In my world nothing
feels like the sun.
I live cold with nothing
left to burn.
My heart, my radiance. Gone.
For one brief moment
I took my place among the stars.
My ember slagged to
nothing on the earth.
The stolen fire burns.
Starlight from heaven.
Fragments of the sun.
In my memory, they still burn me.
