I’m stronger than I feel. I burn
With ageless fire, recreate
Fifty five thousand searing stars
To rain or blaze like molten gold.
I am a wonder to behold-
I drink their light: who but myself
Could cradle fire on aer tongue?
I am unlike all else! I rage
With bloody, violent elegance
And laugh with joy, corrupt and vile!
I am exquisite, sheer, and secret:
To twist the mercy in your heart
Would be a breath, a single blink.
I rest. I’m stronger than you think.
