Tumbleweed buries into her deepest consciousness
Strangling all sweet serenity with a sneering sadism
Penetrating all parts that were portals to the hearts of others
And infusing them with a melancholic madness
The vines coil round, constricting ideas and thoughts
Suffocating simmering suggestions of surrender
Savaging Humour as though it were a lamb
Gambolling carelessly into the path of a rabid beast
Tight tendrils of torment catalyse the once-calm sea into an ocean of chaotic craziness
Flagellating her with the ferocity of a fairy tale ogre……..
But this fairy tale does not have a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow
Only the promise of disaster-zone desolation without the hope of a rescue package
When dawn comes she is left in shame
The Seduction shunning her like some two-a-penny lover
But she surrendered.
Not in the way that she foresaw.
Not in the way that she tried to control.
Not in the way that she expected.
