Subtle Strength


She showed a subtle strength

unaware that she was smiling

she held the space inside

so high

and deep into the ground

she died

She shook hands

with the skeleton-man

and he took her in

though she broke his hand

The earth had swallowed her

skin and bone

Death had borrowed her

and still she shone


She followed the dead

into darkness and rest

until no light recided

in her skeleton-chest

Fed by the stillness

and danced by the night

she left the chambres

to seek out the light

At first it was blinding

unable to see

but then looking back

from the mirror

was me

A subtle strength

shining from my pair of eyes

A subtle strength smiling

from someone who dies
