rewriting the world,
then living inside of my letters.
I whisper sweetness to the universe,
paths of gold stick to my shoes,
my soul ascending,
while my body is tethered to the ground.
watching them unravel,
then wrap around me,
until I am complete.
I watch the universe fall in love with me,
gently rebuilding me,
rewarded for waiting,
I kiss my own reflection every morning,
shyly at first,
but forever more passionate,
because I am the favoured daughter of the Fortuna,
no longer in disgrace,
no longer longing for men’s eyes,
but never truly forsaken.
I lounge on clouds,
drawing the desires of my heart to her,
so she can be satisfied.
I don’t sink anymore,
I just wait,
