Favorite Quote:
"We know what we are, but not what we may be" - Shakespeare

her eyes are closed tightly
the charcoal ribbons
have bound her body,
clenched and skintight.
knots of ebony hair,
roughened coat of silver sharpness,
a heart of burdensome stone.
the growl of depression
screeches beneath her screen
the markings of clawed
at skin scrape away
at the inexperienced flesh
