bright heart

it is the song inside
that moves beneath
most frigid frozen flesh
most grey mask of decay
it is the heat within
betrays the failing skin
like a beauty buried
a star in the earth beating
beating a measure of light
that escapes the cracks
humming soft of biding time
’til the singer tears the crust away
and bright heart blazes
