her swan song


White-Swan

adrift upon melancholy

Unique in every way

Loneliness her one companion

A faint heart filled with dismay

 

She, the saint, who has been faithful

She, the sinner, who strayed

She’s wisdom and folly drifting

An ebb and flow often played

 

She loved; they scorned. She grieved; they laughed

A silent chaos lies

Her dark side is what the world sees

As crimsoned purity cries

 

A reflection unrecognized

Their criticism brings

On lonely nights hear her swan song

As she spreads her darkened wings

 

Trying to reach the heavens as

Tear drops fall and ripple

Sanctuary beyond the skies

Where words no longer cripple
