born a heavenly body
not of her own,

by a harsh world,

hiding her homeland,
looking up

to divine guidance;
starburst heart,

her star trail aura

a light to all

she fades slowly,
blinking out

a glimmer
in a charcoal eye,

a falling comet
reduced to embers,

a dying orb
returning to a heavenly body
