"and kisses are a better faith than freedom"

She was skin and bones
Laced in a velvet blanket
Of Mountain and blue lakes
Sewn together by tiny threads
Worn away by her mind
Shivers and icicles
Electric storms buzzing
One blue, one white
Calmed her ocean's rages
Set her in a sea of peace
Flew her to the clouds
Where she would never fall down

Take nothing but pictures,
Kill nothing but time.
