sullen on a stairwell
remaining quiet and dead
a lonely angel in her tears
condemned what love had bled

it was when beauty rang as true
beyond a darkened storm
that through a dream which bloomed and bloomed
she took an earthly form

embracing what true offerings
our realm just may extend
when chasing what she longed to have
a lifetime she would spend

to have and hold the heart of one
who promised her a life
which would not veil her deep in gloom
and yet he drew a knife

that aimed to see what may derive
from there within her heart
and as he twisted it in her
it tore her world apart

and so she turned that knife away
to bury it in him
then doubted she could trust again
as dreams do ripen dim

Robert Anderson

Daily Quote: "One should rather die than be betrayed. There is no deceit in death. It delivers precisely what it has promised.
Betrayal, though ... betrayal is the willful slaughter of hope."
--Steven Deitz
