The embers burned so brightly,

only the keeper could see it

with their bare eyes.

It’s a miracle;

a glimpse of bliss,

and now here it is

in a box, kept

for safe keeping.

It was hidden from you,

you were not worthy,

and I coud not put my

trust in you to protect it.

I locked up my

hopes and dreams in this box,

out of sight, and mind;

I was vulnerable.

But I opened the box,

and it glowed like

a thousand suns,

and I was blinded

but made strong

again, and now I’m

ready for ecstasy.
