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.
