One of my first poems
| A creative, intelligent woman with impenetrable spirituality who holds the highest ray of beauty and health her body could possibly reach; submerged under water and trapped under glass. An ethereal force in a human, suffocating and forced to watch a plagued beam of muck and fire wrap around her delicate shell and fit its claw down the throat to consume, to control, to ruin. Submerged under water, trapped under glass, suffocating, and watching the muck and fire that is not her, but comes from her, becoming the identity of the sacred flesh in which she was blessed.
