Gothic Grace -

She had a gothic heart,
predictability and tamming tranquility were her counterparts,
she felt pain as gain,

peace was nettlesome and purposeless,
an abomination that careless civilization is undeserving of,
life is best consumed in confrontation,

within her magnificent mind God's value gravitated toward the power of volatility,
instability as instinct,
truth is permenance in transition,
Victoria believed that divinity as a mystery unsolved is more exhilerating
than explication or epiphany leading to the extinction
of curiosity's reign,
Victoria knew that law and politics are nothing more than an imposition
by the few heaved upon the many,a yoke of oppressive genius,
Victoria, a child of love betrayed,a woman of courage displayed
thought toughly & tenderly about the potential of mercy,
an enviable Empress,

compassion and kindness were complimentary components
to her dangerous disposition as hawkish talons
may be employed for feeding of fighting,
she developed into a clandestine warrior of natural necessity,
this world would either waste her
or she would wound the witnessed wickedness,

there was no harmony to be hankered for,life is a war of wills & wits,
espionage,diplomacy,truces,tributes and trounces always in the making,
Victoria loved God like a woman loves the anguish of pregnancy,
Victoria had a passion and a pity
for the Creator responsible for her awakening -

    Hey Justin. I've been reading some more of your work on here- I really like your work. I understand your situation- I don't expect you to read my work but I do appreciate your respect--I am just glad that yours is available to the public ^^. Your work is very inspiring. In fact, if you have ever read my poem called Plucked Raven Feather--I wrote that piece in part with your work and your brilliance in mind. I hope all is well. Thanks for your sweet words on my latest piece. Always, Laura

    I should watch that movie, the Bride Of Frankenstein - Victoria can be easily misunderstood because she is a warrioir Jay, like you are, and sometimes people refuse to sympathize with a warriors fury and ambition - coming from an expert this compliment is motivating Jay, thanks - J.A.B. %

    I am here for my dose of your contribution to my intellect. Love that line "truth is permanence in transition"; loved to dwell on that and others in Victoria's story. Keep that pen going Justin, makes me happy! Love, Lizabeth
