It bucks and roars with adamantine ferocity,
And the convoluted fire stings her veins.
And her mind departs, though her spirit remains
To be tormented, tattered, and torn.
Brilliance sharpens to madness
As the pain crescendos, silencing her soul.
Fear, asphyxiating veil of darkness, falls shroud-like,
Dark and unforgiving over her remains.
Life becomes but an option
Until light at last cracks the deathly shroud,
And a cool wisp of breath ignites her spirit once again.
