Metamorphosis

You took the sweet-lipped child
                             as she slept in innocence.
As she danced, with the daisies in her hair,
                             at a picnic party.
And now, 
The sour-mouthed woman
                rises from the broken fragments.
And now you wonder.
And now you back away in horror.

See,
        The woman stands alone among you.
See,
        The anger curdles deep within her.
See,
        The weeds that curl around her fingers.

There she buried the young child.
There, she sacrificed the young child.

The grave, forever burnt into her eyes,
Shows where the young child died.

love's tempestunrequited love

Child ghost dancing
dark dead daisies
see
mad screaming woman
running far away.
