Anastasia

however you might trample me
I will rise again.
untouched, unloved, unheeded-
defined, deified, dismembered
bone from bone, enslaved in eternal bonds;
raped, ravished, rescued in false gallantry,
till every atom of my self is broken down;
branded, cremated, burnt at stake
I will rise again.
