She always knew she was lucky to be
Loved. Ungloved, though, her mind hated herself,
Berated, castigated; honoree
Of nothing but egotism, of self.

She tried to free being when young, unhung
Aspirations of becoming someone
In the struggle. Feloned life. She restrung
Adversity, like pearls shot from a gun,

Bulleted into someone else’s house,
Someone else’s life. Cruel dreams, unfulfilled,
Create themes of self-destruction… Hush, mouse,
It takes eternity to become – skilled.

Days fade into nights; she becomes sorrow.
Built to absorb sin, she weeps tomorrows.

Erin, you have such remarkably deep thoughts and express them so well. I'm amazed by your work. I love this line - She restrung
Adversity, like pearls shot from a gun. Thanks, it is always an honor to read your work.

A brilliant, brooding piece of work, Erin. Love it! The brain-mind-ego connection to three dimensional reality is a labryinth only the fearless dare to navigate... "Built to absorb sin"... fascinating how the dark side is so very alluring...
Well done, Poetess.
