My First Love Was Rock Bottom (2014)

My first love was
rock bottom, heart-shaped
stones rejected by cave walls
that spawned them,

eroded their place
so holes of
similar shapes

could conquer consistency,
figuring the people trapped
within
jagged walls
would appreciate

the stars.

But I never wanted
to be an astronomer
once I learned to
be the center

of the Earth.

In a furnace that forged
me from molten rock,

Iโ€™m beholden to rebirth,
a dying
little flicker
forever
tied to my worth,

but I swear
Iโ€™m not ready to
climb
back
up.
