You Are Made Up

of so many stars

I can see it, now
each flicker
is you, singing out
I am burning

loving you
is my childhood bedroom
covered in stickers,
a ceiling, walls, all glowing
as I sleep

like this interminable wait
to grow up and be astronaut
to suspend and feel finite
to see your shine up-close
and burn up with you

is so far off

so for now,
I decorate my insides
with your light.
