Face Full of Stars

Stripes of blue or red
glittery drops
spikes that extend the length of a stage
fiery orange

The glorious noise
you emit
is so strange
yet familiar
like the sound of
the home you never had

the pull of your unfamiliarity
sparked madness every way

You blinked and the world
rotated your way
not knowing that you
exuded through your very pores
the essence of self

we could be you
by being you
but you wanted more
than earthly bounds
and repetitive creation

and you reached it
each time
with thin white hands
shaky but unconcerned.
You fell like only a star can

and made a crater so big
the worlds ego dropped in

But I heard you
in your silence
and it inspired
me to explode
