Treasuries

She has the blinding lights
Of a million burning stars
On the tip of her tongue.
But she would rather swallow them
Than to show them to anyone
In the blink of an eye.

I have no means of learning
What she is hiding in her chest
Or other secret treasuries.
Yet I know full well that any fraction
Of the flame buried within
Would warm me for a dozen lifetimes.
