• He placed mahogany in her eyes
    Where the ocean sapphire was once.
    But why destroy when rivers currents
    Can sweep you away?
    Silver chains that bind her
    And endure the stress of will;
    Why let waterfalls erupt,
    Yet shield shades darker than black?
    He slays the true demon who breathes
    Ice, not fire.
    Why still shutting dark wings without thought
    At the close of day?
