INCARNATION

Pale temptress;

deep scars

marks her soft flesh

and sting

her gentle soul.

Weeping child;

lost and alone

in the wild world

of lies

and dark betrayal.

Pure maiden;

guilded cage

holds her prisoner

and keeps

her in a vision.

Vile fiend;

forced stigma

gnaw at her bones

they push

and pull her actions.

Invisible shadow;

empty space

the cold, covering blanket

left exposed

of all pain and glory.

Girl;

complicated form

with her broken body

and mind

working to find herself.
