The Standard Corral for a Wild Heart

I'm the adventurous sort
I charge headlong into things
that strike a chord or spark a flame

I chase lightning and bend rainbows
to illuminate my capricious paths

I ride comets and shooting stars
as they rush headlong into the earth

I enjoy getting thrown from the impact
as they shatter into millions of shimmering pieces

I laugh out loud as the shower of the spacefrost and stardust
coats me and the ground around me
leaving an impression of who I was in that moment

I look back on those days and forward to every tomorrow
when my heart skips a beat and forgets that it's alive

I wonder all too often when I will have another chance
to resuscitate those lives
