Drawn Straight from Her Soul

The plummet,
she decided,
was a matter of
inevitability.
The truth of it,
personal,
and not for the reasons
they claimed were true.

Her fall
was purposeful,
having had enough
of the material things
they demanded
she chase,
the cost
drawn straight from her soul.

Meaning
was deemed too expensive,
though exhaustion
was free.
Invaluable,
though,
was life begging her to awaken.
And so she did.

About Christina Anne Hawthorne

Alive and well in the Rocky Mountains. I'm a fantasy writer who also dabbles in poetry, short stories, and map making. My Ontyre tales are an alternative fantasy experience, the stories rich in mystery, adventure, and romance. Alternative fantasy? Not quite steampunk. Not quite gothic. In truth, the real magic is in those who discover what's within.
