Shytty title I know. I'll think of something. Any Suggestions? It has no set pattern. So don't bytch.

The Burning

-----------

She was so young so,

Innocent

As I watched

Helplessly

As they bind her

Hands and feet

Rejected by all

and cursed

Like a demon

Caught and sentenced

For Witchcraft

She held her head

High

Too proud to look

Down

She faced her accusers

And was dragged

To her death

She welcomed it

Chained to her fate

Flames tasting her flesh

I heard her screams

Of anguish

The pain of her cries

The stench of burning

Her death surrounds me

Yet at the end

I smile

For despite my sadness

I knew she would be free

And accepted

In her arms.
