ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Scars were her poison
always ugly in day
ripped her own heart out
as if to say:
sing not to me
I care not at all
I am who I'll be
or I'll be not at all

Caress

Death
  is beautiful
    and cold
it turns
  like something in the hand of a child
      a delicate balance
                             Life
  is gentle and golden and lasts
      as the length of our dreams last
           the long edge of a cloud
  Because we're that kind
              of people
          Bridges
         stained silver like rain
      and some of stone but All this will be gone
    Because Death
            hissing
                    flashing
                             sparking
        is nothing like a caress
                 still
      it is among the
                        gentlest
               of acts
