there is fire in her eyes
and thunder in her step
rage rumbling reckless
She's livid

Is it a crime
To pry apart rhyme
Stitch lines, unhitched
From native consequence

In patchwork verse

In my malaise
My daydreams ablaze
I long for eloquence...

Somethings are best 
said through blank
scriptures in sheer 
silence, but pulling the 
violin strings of
a poet strumming
to personify pain, 
with tempests of 
torment rushing
