The Quagmire - Poem by Jennifer Batch

Deep within the quagmire, far beneath earth's surface
Her body lays hidden, forever shackled in her bondage
She sits alone within her room praying she'll be saved
Pleading sighs which flee her lips float upon the air
From her lips your name escapes like sweetness in the morning dew
Will you reach out your hand to her, freeing her from her captor?
Alas, tis much too late for her, her pleas will go unheard
Never again will her lips whisper, softly speaking to your heart
No longer will she beg for freedom, no longer will she plead for help
For deep within the quagmire, far beneath earth's surface
Her body lays hidden, forever shackled in her bondage
