Dark Spoils

Orb

Breathe the night that lights your eyes with stars,
for the dreams sequestered in those dark hollows
long for nova. New worlds, swift to the burgeoning
edge, hold for your unspoken hopes, boiling holes
in our universe. Dark spoils hide in every heart,
and every sacred breath that’s held must be released.

Breathe the night that lights your eyes with stars,
for dreams can never birth themselves.
