Blood of the Stars — a poem for you

The blood of the stars flows through your veins.

You are radiant:
A cosmic refraction
Eclipsing all else.

You are mystery:
Unlimited by origin
Unbound in space.

You are brave:
Draped in light
Resilient in love.

Wild—

You are fervent:
Born of fire
Brazen in darkness.

The blood of the stars flows through my veins.
