Icarus

I fly with time,

Spin with the Earth

Out of my orbit,

Following Hers

/

Her bigger circle

My fast-lived life

Could never merge with:

Its vastness grinds

/

My limbs to ashes,

Laughs into silence,

Words into echoes,

Beauty to blindness;

/

As time consumes

My wings, like Icarus’,

I feel my future wounds,

I feel the stars
