Ophelia darling,
how do you stand ?
how do you lay ?
how do you drown ?
at my dismay.

you stand with such grace
such beauty and poise
yet in death not the same
your quite the ugly duckling
are you not darling ?
yet you cant answer
you cant stand, just

lay for eternity
ponder your paternity
your choices
the voices
that surround you
in purgatory

Where is the pit that holds the dreamers?

The author's comments:
based on the attitudes of women and how some woudl still hurt and abuse in death.
To second that a metaphor for the sin or lach of hope in always carrying that dream.
