A Handful of Stars

I wanted the sky

I coveted the stars

I bled the earth dry

and I slept on glass shards

 

I woke demons from slumber

and armed them with sword

They clamoured like thunder

at my every word

 

But my soul longed for songbirds

with their gentle lullaby

For melodies of nothing

and an empty blue sky

 

So I struck down my demons

I set the stars free

I found my sweet songbird

and I slept peacefully
