The Maker’s Star Seed.

I looked into the abyss and lived to tell you all about it

Didn’t leave unscathed though, take a look at my heart —

Notice the battle scars — how they embellish over my blood pump

With the subtlety of post-war badges.

God penned the dots in my eyes with the cosmic strength of black holes

Rarely — if ever —do words escape the pull of my gaze.

I am a star-eyed dragon, the kind you find hidden in the pages of a book long forgotten

With each word I write, I light a fire —when I speak, I light an unseen pyre,

Averting the gaze of those trapped inside the darkness.

See, most people would rather spend a majority of their lives

Waiting eagerly for their genius to be verified.

… and of course; you’d be right in thinking,

I’m not one of them.
