Rozaleah's Song

There is a shadowed stillness in her sadness;
A pale blue promise
Whose time has passed.
She does not dare so fiercely now, the caring -
Reaching instead to Galaxies
                                           Past imagining...

There is a voice beyond sound in the gray mist
Singing its own lament.
                                           She will always stand
Backed against the last wall left;
The rage not quite so red,
But tempered with a passage of time
Spent forgotten
And melting into questions
                                            Of direction...

To find that sheltered place...
To claim her passage
Hard fought within the asylum:
                                               Fifth Planet from a different sun
                                               Of another Empire
                                               In another Star System.

Some of many would call her crazy;
She would call them blind
And refuse to cry
Within her silent self restraints...
Then build a Jadite pryamid to stand upon
And wonder why
Just "why"...

In the living, still dark aftermath
Of fragile pictures etched in rain....
                                                   And Rozaleah's song...

    A delicately phrased and ethereal construct of Rozaleah (beautiful name), portraying a being so "easily shattered." I very much appreciated your use of language and your skill in bringing Rozaleah to life for us. Good work.
