Societal views wrap around our unique beauty, weighing it down so that it burdens and ultimately destroys our soul

 Dark and haunting wisps of air/entangled in the willow's hair/their fickle streams cumber the sheath/forcing her to bow her head/and weep

A write set out in abstract form. Cleverly done so as not to be pondered over at length to be able to interpret its meaning. A cleverly painted picture in words.

Your introductory line alone is remarkably profound. The artwork is also profound. I understand this poem. Stunning. ~~ Diana

Pure artistry, so beautiful that it overpowers meaning. My feeble brain cannot see the connect with the opening statement. Perhaps there is some hidden message there that I cannot understand.

Enjoyable, Your style is your style!

Reviewed by Jerry Bolton 9/21/2012
Although I like your poem and its message, Shirley, I think it would be more effective if you were to go ahead and release the breaks into simple lines.
