All the stars are closer

They told me that
It was not enough
I was not enough
Tired of the fight
Between latitudes
Theirs and mine

Spiral after spiral
The black staircase
Kept going on
Like a never ending spell
Lines blurred with
Displaced pain

I climbed, I ran
I swam, I sank
To only resurface after
Surviving the supernova
With a frenzied breathlessness
And a fortunate delirium

Let me number and indent
All the arguments
All the naysayers
All the fictional impediments
Countless and pointless
I am here, I am here
