i never touched sirius

as the fusion fire ceases
like a kiss vaguely remembered
gentle metal, torrid sand

magic, do your part
ride the wind and carve a body
from the dust at journey's end

then as sharply as the sun rays
like knives between the parting doors
revelation and despair

i danced with the centauri trio
i felt tau ceti on my skin
but still nothing can compare

that image burned into my soul
the truth as bare as my new feet
i step out onto the loam

faustianly - the trade complete
a worldless life for a lifeless world
barren wasteland, former home
