She Bleeds, She Queries

Love, Poetry

Is it the wound of her soul

that grieves,

for the universe has swallowed

her courage to gamble

what might have been?

 

Is it the wound of her soul

that paints

the shades of fear 

of suffering

from surrendering?

 

Again, she queries,

“Which pain is greater?”
