Boundless Woman

by Vanessa Codorniu

Beckoned to soar passed stars
as night lowers her silky indigo skirt
I spring forward without care
my heart as always
dares.

Awakened to flakes of desiccated star dust
surrounding me,
a crackling and faded corset
that no longer adorns
my earthly flesh.

Disappointed
I turn away
only to sway and sway
and sway…

Embodied freely
I am the night

I am the corset
I am the stars
and each curve of feeling
of feminine embodied light.

T’was my shell that lay in pieces
a cocoon outdone
a costume outgrown.

Stars fill me freely now
Unbound Soul
Boundless Woman

I spring forward without care
my heart as always dares.
