Around and Around We Go

Fingers phantom across her flesh
brushing against the angel kisses dusting her cheeks

Flowers—red and purple—stain her skin, enveloping her eyes
tears overflow—streaking through bloody, broken skin

His embrace is like an open flame
incinerating her resistance built up from this latest assault
