Solar

You can’t extinguish the sun
With any amount of rain
This sun’s on fire
Eternal lasting flame

If you tried to put out this star
With water from all the oceans
I would just burn brighter
With hydrogen explosions

I can’t stop shining
I was born to do it
I’ll decide when my time has come
I’m the one going through it

Stars come and go
Born and eventual collapse
But how brilliant was I
Between that interlapse

I won’t always rise in the sky
Just simply enjoy the day
For now I haven’t found my night
In my perpetual decay

When I go you’ll know
It won’t be sad or grey
You’ll ride my waves, mark my graves
Worship my erupting display

I. AM. THE. SUN.
I awaken these dark worlds
Exhaust the cost to find what’s lost
And polish these old pearls

My Starlet

Same curly hair.
Same brilliant smile.
Same enormous heart.
But only tiny for a while.

You’re my little star.
I’m your big, shiny moon.
I’ll always be your Dish.
Run away with me, Spoon!

We belong together
Swinging out into space.
You’re my precious starlet
With the most beautiful face.

Love you, Lillian. You’re magical.
