*out of the fears*

petrified
as a statue
watching life in passing
she waited
patiently
in an odd silence
an unnatural solitude
veiled
in a scarf of pain

questions
in her head
lined up
without rest
weights of guilt
upon her shoulders
too heavy to bare
as a lunatic
she took them all
in a wish
of no harm

afraid
to breath
her cracked heart
stands no more
loosing the grip
sliding
down the cliff

tired
of the own nature
weary
of the futile devotion
she steps
out of the fears

her ocean boils
the ice of her patience
burns in flames
her raindrops of calm
are the steam
upon the mirror
of the past
