She Wore a Crimson Veil

24 Aug

A woman desperately
wounded
by cruel fury.
Her jagged sepulcher
smile
shattered by
thunderstorm blasts.

She crys into
the wind staring
at waves made of
the splendour
of flowers. Her
cloak of flesh
once a beautiful
bridge, but no
longer.

She breathes
illusions delightful,
and swims
into the water.
Underwater she sinks
to sleep with her
suffering.

    Powerful poem; and a lesson in imagery. So excellent.

      Thanks ever so much for the compliment. This piece honestly just sprang unbidden to my brain, and I ran it with. Namaste.
