Starlight. (reblog)

[Reblogging this poem from http://devoutdesires.wordpress.com/2014/03/23/146/
The talented Kaitlinn’s poem gave me tingles of emotion and reminded me of Natalie another talented poet I follow. While I’m looking for my own Starlight powered humanity at the moment…]

===

in the middle of the night
she swallows stars like candlelight
and feels them burn through her fingertips
feels them burn through her skin
thinks maybe the reason she feels so empty is
because everything she touches
is stained with soot
and grit
and emptiness

doesn’t realize everyone else is staring because she’s
lit from within
figures they all hate her figures
she’s a sin

doesn’t realize people are dying
just to be let in.
