You gave me back the stars 
that were doomed in my memory. 

The constellations that had 
left an acrid taste in mouth 
now taste sweet. 
The bitterness of their 
sacred names swiftly dissipating 
from my tongue. 
My jaw, once clenched tight 
with anger, finally relaxed 
into a smile of serenity. 

Allowing me to bask in awe 
under the stars once again.
