Being a visionary can leave one feeling vulnerable & fearful! It's not always comfortable being unique & creative.


I watched as she descended/
erratically/
like a butterfly/
blown off course/
a malady/
delicate & vulnerable arms flailing/
tepidly/
unparalled/
her life has been/
a soliloquy/
she holds screams/
within her soul/
tacitly/
chaotic, the calm/
veiled by an opaque/
canopy/
brilliant her aura/
but she hides/
flickering/
prostrate she lies/
prostrate she lies/
veracity/
voices billow/
from hollowed lairs/
grumblings/
illuminating nescient and cloned/
atrocities/
she's at the edge/
just holding on/
to sanity/
accepting her plight/
apart from her light/
a tragedy/
I cried as she descended/
erratically/
like a butterfly/
blown off course/
a malady/
delicate & vulnerable arms flailing/
tepidly/
unparalleled/
her life has been/
a soliloquy/
she holds screams/
within her soul/
tacitly/
chaotic, the calm/
veiled by an opaque/
canopy/
she cannot perceive/
the depth of her/
profundity/
nor does she know/
the breadth of her/
necessity….

I think this has cadence of dance, a spareness and a frailty/fierceness kind of duality. ~~ Diana
Reviewed by Richard King 3/30/2012
I much enjoyed the direction this was taking me although I found the repeating lines a bit disconcerting.

Still in all, much food for thought. I felt the photo and the words telling me the same story.
