Heavy Constellations

I tried to reach you today
Sending flares into the black space
Out beyond and expanding farther
I shrank in my place
As it lit up regions of the starless void
But you weren’t really there
I offered you one more chance
To take my burdens, to take care
To reverse the polarity that aged me
In ways for which I am commended
But if I could spin back the years,
Return what descended,
And curl up secure
In a warm star

Today I would,
But the stars we may see,
Burned to death before our time;
You answered, but haven’t been home.
