“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud
was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” ~Anais Nin

maul

guileless princess
daddy’s darling
pirouetting faun
in jungle of life
little did she know
family friends, kin
were wolves
with wandering
limbs
hastily hushed
she bled inside
a tightened bud
in betrayal’s
light

will she
can she
fully blossom
petals pristine
unblemished
with eyes clear
limpid pools
for love’s spools
I wonder,,,
