Suddenly, a dark city, a dark face.
I followed it, and then I shone.
Orange streetlamps revealed walking ink,
A shifting, formless thing.
Oil-black words accused me of emptiness,
Noiseless, deafeningly loud.
A shot through the heart,
Allowing forgiveness, healing.
The light fell upon us like a winter rain.
Sparkling, crystal clear, pure.
All of us held it, held it fast,
Our hearts ringing with its truth.
I awoke and suddenly there was darkness.
Storm clouds, metal, glass,
An ocean in agony.
Words do you no justice.
Your eyes, so sad, so beautiful.
Your voice, wordless but so clear to me.
You reached out to touch my face even then.
Golden light zipped by us as you cried.
I told him not to hurt you.
I told him to take me to the core.
I remember a rainbow ring, a sudden rush of air.
Flying, speed incomprehensible, arriving at that archaic place.
I pressed my forehead to the green and whispered the only line I remembered.
Chaos is power, enriched by the heart.
Do you remember me?
Beneath my hands, a sense of final triumph.
The reality around me shifted within, dark and infinite.
She asked me, do you want to be the server?
Do you want to be the center, the uniting factor?
Do you want to fill this ancient, empty role?
I said yes.
She knew that I loved you. She smiled.
She told me to bring you home.
I said I would, but she shook her head.
Not here, she said.
Then she pointed to my heart.
Open it, or it will be forced open.
I surrendered to the spinning colors.
My mind melted into something vast.
My heart shining with the clear light.
I felt my consciousness bloom.
White, violet, amber pink glow.
Strange feathers like ivory blades.
Melting away into the sunlight beneath.
I formed an arrow from my heart,
A pinpoint of hope and love,
And I sent it to its mark.
The ocean collapsed into a single point.
I fell into a single space as well,
My hands reaching into the water.
Shadows shrieked into my arms, swirling.
I wanted to free you from that forever.
Then, suddenly, my hands were in yours.
It was so bright, so clear.
The darkness faded away like ashes.
You took my face in your hands,
Pulling me close as you kissed me.
Our hearts were open.
And then the city was alight.
Reduced to nothing, burning away.
Then sparkling, glowing, reborn.
And you and I, together, above it all.
We had our wings, our stellar bodies, and you smiled.
Too weak to stand, we held each other,
never wanting to let go again.
You were crying and smiling, as clear as the light.
I'll never forget the conviction in your voice.
I can't wait until I finally see you.
You sent me back and I am here.
I am, here.
Whatever the future holds,
As long as I remember this truth,
I will never fall.
We will all see the stars again.
