Their captive
Wringing
The Last Tear
Dragged through
Teeth
STRAIN
BURST

limp
the snake rope ribbonly falls
continuous
sinuous
in a heapish pile
circle
the rising figure

Oh wow. The word-pictures here are really good. Reminds me of Plath. It could use a bit more structure, perhaps, but I could totally feel what you were picturing, Well done!

Thank you for the pointers. I usually forget about structure to just try to get the image down, but I see what you mean. It kind of messes up the flow.
