Ironic - persistent, redundant, the failure of time,
Chasing a trail of blood circle- c's,
Beauty, shamelessly clinging to hopes
Illustrating madness' epitomes.
In-eloquently, she is labeled a "fool,"
By those who would respond in despair.
The wiser admire she who survives -
In a cage, enduringly gasping for air.
Perhaps this endurance is greater a curse,
Willingly sentenced to Eternity's strife.
Regardless of whether death shall prevail -
There will always be greater beauty in Life!
