She had heaven’s voice

Caught in earths sigh

Tears her mantle

Sorrows her stage


Isolation her gate keeper

Forgotten her footpath

Silence her mentor

Misunderstood her tavern


Friends evade her

Foes pursued her

Darkness induces her

Despair craves her


Confidence omits her

Neglect welcomes her

Destitute is needy for her

Peace denies her


In battle she roams

From conflict she hides

Faith’s famine fancies her

Hope’s drought drains her




Her capture



Acceptance sanctioned her

surrender carried her

Belong saluted her

Care shaded her


Security cloaked her

Joy embraced her

Serenity waited on her

Compassion enthralled her


Tenderness protected her

Affection warmed her

Adoration prepared her

Passion compelled her





to take her

there stood the Subject

of all

She had inherited

set aside for her

gifted to her


In her darkest moments

her despair

her trauma

her torment

She sights


Love bowed

Love applauded

Love dressed her

Love crowned her


Her jewels sparkled

Her eyes marvelled

Her heart exposed 

Her spirit now her pose.
