Lady of the Sea

Long ago, alongside whales and dolphins
Swimming carefree beneath ocean waves
Peculiar beings entrapped me
Forcefully brought me to shore
Positioned their trophy
Permanently still
Clothed into stone
Numb abode
Playmates
Swim
I
Hardened
My heart grieves
For source of life
Direct gaze to sea
In the absence of breath
How can I reclaim my heart
Will strangers ever part with me
Respect appeal from Whales and Dolphins
Grant my spirit a return to the sea

Deliverance

Rose
flowers
graced headdress.
Grave tearing eyes
behind hazy veil
beseeching liberty.
Wriggling worms inch in her brain,
demon denounces her evil
bellowing, “Kill the King! Kill the King!”
Dagger in hand perforates her belly.
Worms slithering in her infested womb.
Poison-laced blade reaching to the King,
demons echoing, “King is Dead!”
Exultation raise the veil
complete deliverance.
Embracing the void
she reigns on High
entering,
heaven’s
womb.
