The poem(s) are below...


To be or not to be

She bled into a river
Where shallow water slept
Pored the essence from her soul
There with the leaves 
That autumn wept

As drop by drop she finally broke
The surface there below 
Broke through that murky river
Where her life began to flow

A stream of white upon a breast
Of dank and muddy water
Forgetting every moment
All the things that life had 
Taught her
