INKTOBER 2018: Star, Day 8

Art and Poem by Miguel Guerreiro Lourenço

As a throwback to SCAVs, the webcomic I co-created with Anna Zee, I drew a sun with their spaceship coming out, full speed. As for the poem, I was inspired by an abusive relationship growing up. Below is the transcription:

I wept, wanting for the implosion

of a star that had blinded me

that had burnt me

that had boiled -----

my blood and scorched my


had his --------- gravitational pull

been weaker and I stronger

perhaps... perhaps,

I would have turned out differently

before his flame finally dissipated.
