Reconstruction

Cover me in your blanket of stars

Allow your light to kiss my cheeks

Surround me by your dark embrace

Cradle your palm beneath my chin

Absorb my shuddering pale knees

Bleach out my bare brittle bones

Scour away my self-taught lies

Infuse my heart with redeeming faith

Believe in my capacity to learn

Compose a new song of we

    Did anyone get the licence plate number of the truck that just hit me? Fantastic seems too pale a word for such a bright poem!
