Goddess (Of Disgrace) - Poem by Karmel Clune

The luminescent moon shines lightly upon her
As tears cascade down her face
Like blood from a slit wrist
Surrounded by the putrid scent of disgrace
Whilst darkness shrouds her mind
The piercing cries pour forth from
Her open mouth and emanates across the
Vast expanse of nothing

Around her there is emptiness, nothing more
She sits upon the damp grass
Clutching at her legs
She tucks them to her chest
As if they could be her shield

The flowing white dress upon her form
Is as elegant as those a princess would wear
Deep green eyes that go on forever, never fading
And black hair that none but a goddess could have
Her face, though stained with drying tears, is as beautiful as no other

The memory of what has passed still lingers in her head
Reminding her that she can not escape
She knows she must run, but from what she's never known...

So she stays in spite of herself
And awaits what fate has dealt for her
Enough of this life she hates utmost
She escapes back into the forest of her own mind
The stars around her stay solemnly in the sky
And the luminescent moon shines upon her
