Stranded. Delayed.
she fears the dark
tightening noose
upon her heart
seen the pure, many a dream
of peace and grace and love.

Helpless. Penniless.
she imagines existence
with plenty a doubt
vision grows dim
acknowledging fissures
of suffering, faith, and clout.

Wisdom. Discernment.
acknowledging how
delay the skies
rain upon eyes,
clarion thoughts clear echoes,
soul’s chamber doors locked.

Beating. Crushing.
heart’s feverish pitch
hungry minutes ago,
years passing by
she blinks aside,
world dissolves before her eyes.
