In the twilight of that mind,
Turntables blast out despair
Unable to fathom out her own kind.
Two open-ended books splay their outward innards.
Hesitant to accept the possibility of another perspective.
Suppose there is alien life out there…
That we can conceive of.
An outcome for her resolve to never give in to her woes?
Roses feel pain when cut down by brutal shears.
Where are the moderators in this game of Divine consequences?
Have they too been bribed to ostracise the rest?
A product rebranded a Rose.
Children toy with her parts, cut her hair, drown her until her lungs, over-bloated
Spew out flotsam froth.
A final rattle forming a bubble of foam.
Youth is fleeting
as a pirate’s final orgasm freeing his seamen to rest.
This flight became her ghost – it tormented her in a walking state of slumber.
When Rose was of a venerable age she sat upon her own Fate.
Ignorant to all counsel,
She lacked common sense for a daredevil debate.
‘Mere islands’, she would bluster.
An ancient mariner couldn’t deny that she was born to a concubine.
Made from unusual voodoo cut cloth.
She mixed rarely with other groups
Outside of Fear
For impending wrath.
Her weeping congealed by third-degree burns.
Shuffling her feet- rarely led to any sudden about upturn.
What prompted Rose to behave in such a manner?
Emotional intelligence IQ lower than an abyss in Alabama?
Regret staggers not long after
Rose’s final walk down the marching plank.
Swords of sleeted ice pierce into her back.
She ignores all those gallant enough to help her find her to her new abode.
She has the the secret code to,the Outlaw, of the conquered seas.
Why put the world on pause when time is has its own entity?
Reality is indendant of thought.
She thrashes about with the sense of an insecure perception of identity.
The FATAL FLAW for love on the grandest vessel
She sunk to her final resting place –
the bottom of the plastic strewn, infested seabed.
The day she allowed this rogue to assault her
Though she did plea;
Her screams were ignored-complicit to acquiesce.
Love is partly veiled.
One can’t see through the composition of the waves.
She casts one final look around,
She sees the world in all its chaos- divided into self destruct.
We don’t have love!
How can we summon humanity?
It’s merely a spectacle!
A damning show.
She turns around and winks at the one who took her to his chambers.
wonders if this Outlaw knew that he was taking her soul’s ability to speak.
There is no ending to pain.
Only true bedlam can express her reality.
She is the thorn.
She is the rose.
