Fragile...

Cursing, yelling, screeching,
kicking,
the beast bellows
out
his mighty call.
Does she dare
answer
his chilling scream?
if
she does not
IT
will find her
and
demand a response,
though
if she does
IT
will consume her
anyway.
Like a china
cup
on the brink
of
a mountain crag,
one
breath of angry
wind
or a careless tap
will send her over,
broken
she will lie.
In
darkness she will
carefully
put herself back
together,
put on a
smiling
face, despite the
showing
cracks and the
missing
chips, evident in
her
life. Won't she
leave?
Can't she let
this
be the last?
No,
it would seem
that
is not so...
