Sleeping Beauty II

Sleeping Beauty II

Description

Sleeping Beauty

A still night
Summer smells
Wet grass
Playful Freedom
Disturbed

Hunters Lurk
Behind cruel smiles
Deluded entitlement
Hateful desire
Wanting now

Sweet dress
Fresh pink nails
Clean, sqeezey hair
A hint of rose oil
Dancing heart

Cruel takers take
Against protest
Hard screams
Wilful violence
No permission

The breeze stirs
Moonlight sparkles
Birds stop
Petals close
Gentle rains land

Death grip
Penetrating her soul
Trails of blood
Imposing nightmares
Overpowered

Looking back
Enough
Movement no more
Deep Silence falls
Sleep long

I leave you flowers
Love letters
Gardens of tears
Butterfly kisses
Tender hugs
and yesterday’s dreams

Beautiful then
Beautiful still
