Distorted Picture

Updated on January 24, 2014

Desirable to look at every man's dream

Immure in her own world

Secrets held close in her heart

To many let downs

Over shadowed by sorrow

Reality viewed through closed eyes

Tendency to fall under spells

Essence of spirit dulled by lost of innocence

Decrepitude of an image reflect in a mirror

Presage of her life carried on the wings of a black crow

Interlace with destiny

ircumvent death, she laughed in its face

Tourniquet twisted inside her soul

Ubiquity of her love was felt in the darkness

Remedy of lost youth retouched by the stroke of a paint brush

Erased away an ugly
