lay still and hush



you lavish your hand nails with lacquer
it might be yellow, red or orchid black
supple your skin with mist
flaunt it, bare it..
never did you found such extraordinary bliss'
lovely as you are,
you are bound for eternity.
your hair--- like bundles of silk
they drape, intertwined--- shrouding your face
like a cocoon; not pure white but pitch black, yet satiny
the wind; cannot dare stagnate,
it loves to blows with it--barely unkempt
lovely as you are,
you are bound for eternity.

but you get lost in dreary dreams
symbols of equality are faded
you're torn, broken and set in disaster
twitched fingers like crow's feet
set in motion,
through it all, you just lay still and hush.

handful of sands, you cup on your palms
your tears are dried up now, but you whining within your core.
should you cast a silent scream and demand blood from the deities'
or should you just lay still and hush.

lovely as you are,
you are bound for eternity.
