Eos rising...

dawn brings shaded longing
when hope falls shattered around weakened ankles
binding feet in tortured place
defeated & depleted
unable to escape
when night once held such blinding promise
only to crumble ugly around the edges
fading slowly into jaded reality
and red-rimmed eyes scan hazy horizon
finding nothing in sight but echoing fog
empty skies & overcrowded tombs
amidst the decay of a hallowed place
where roses grew & love once bloomed
naked limbs shiver uncontrollably
rags of what was torn at the seams
exposing vulnerability to jagged winds
like razors making their way
across aching flesh
as desire dwindles into open wounds
abandoned aspirations lie in broken heaps
and the stinging lash of ancient whips
scarring a heart pushed to the brink
suddenly left in muffled dark
rising from cower to battered knees
arms extended
in supplication or anger
she really couldn't say
tense curls pressing crescents into palms
as pleading hands turn into balls
and she silently retreats within herself
sheltering vision from past endeavors
rebuilding everything above her foundation
carving memories into ebon halls
where only she can sense their presence
unforgotten...yet ever unseen
she reimagines her broken dreams
rebirth in new beginnings
and her morning dawns
with hungry renewal

freeing the goddess within...
