Falling MAG

October 26, 2009
By Anonymous

Falling down her cheek
each tear
a diamond strung on silver.
Condemning bullets,
pierce through each lobe.
Fingers strangled
by bands of brass knuckles.
Feet weathered
by the granite floor,
and daggers
strapped to her ankles.
Her mind
surrendered to fear,
her head,
a vase of wilted orchids.
