She only wanted

Below the surface exists a dream.

Surrounded by altitude, she soared. 

Love exists where the air is hard to breathe.

—–

Chosen to be a vessel,

a jar of splendor,

brimming with holy water; 

they smashed her bones

and took all she possessed,

she spilling onto the streets. 

—–

She only wanted: they stole away her hope.
