Pegasus, Constellated

Once bludgeoned,
I recalled a horse

the winged one - mythic Pegasus -
emerging from Medusa's blood.

Such purity from decadence,
redemption out of certain death.

In conquering this inward fight,
I stormed the darkness,
mastered flight,

ascending stronger through the night
to be these stars

your source
of light.
