Ice Maiden - Curse of Beauty

May 15, 2008
By Kearsten Sours, Mexia, TX

The ascent caused the quaking;
Two days is hard on a child's body.
And yet she is forced into waking
In time for her last sunrise.

A draught is offered,
“Just something for the pain”
She takes what is proffered
And her legs fail to ache.

The chest fails to rise
And the eyes flutter shut
Her beauty was her demise;
Good enough only for the gods.
