A supernova passed me by and at first I was afraid.
I thought that it would cause me harm and bring to surface all the fray.
It lasted only a second but the aftermath was felt so long.
I knew that one touch would burn me; I was weak, it was strong.
I haven't fully recovered from its glory and its scent will forever linger on.
I wish that I could have captured it and felt its heat upon my brow.
I knew I couldn't handle it, not ever and certainly not now.
Overwhelmed by its beauty I had no choice but to sit and glare but how was I to know that I would melt from one moment of its stare?
I only dare....dare to catch a glimpse of it again in this lifetime.
