By blue degrees, she drowns slowly Waiting on skies which never clear While she cuts holes in paper souls Calling pain by prettier names 11/16/21 taken from 'Price of Paradise' Liberum Divisa 8 contest Sponsor: Gregory Richard Barden

This should do well, these lines go deep and with some stunning imagery. "By blue degrees" is so evocative and "calling pain by prettier names" so relatable. Best wishes in the contest. Heading over now to see the original...
