Silent torment silent screams

In the night silent dreams

The cobwebs they thrive in

Eyes that hardly weep

She looks on unwavering

Intents clear but no end in sight

She takes on the challenge

And hopes it will keep

The fires burning in stomach

The hungry embers glowing

Like the falcon eyes and setting sun

Born a curse she sometimes slips

To edges of innocence and pulls back

The un-chartered waters deep and murky

Tempt her to immerse in sinful glory

The dried up streaks of mud

Across a face so aglow with inner light

Abhorrent thoughts of un-chartered mind

Churning, milling flirting enticing

She blinks and moves on
