A lit up sky 
The stars shine
A bit too bright tonight
A glittering mask
To hide behind
Their fatigue lies cloaked
On the other side
Here for the world to see
They shine endlessly
Their brassy edges
Invisible, unseen
But on the other side
Hiding in day-light
They just seem
Like ancient divas
Bested by life
But by habit and by pride
Still cutting through
The famelessness
The agonizing namelessness
Their jagged lightning
Stumbling through the firmament
Tearing at the vaulted heights
One more time
One more time
Just one more time
To light up the sky.
