Stillborn Damsel.
















A hostage to home, her body 
young and broken, falling to pieces in health
betraying happiness; when she thought
she was only changing, and growing
into something more beautiful than herself;
and in death, she finally has.

    That's one difference between us, my post for that picture would be 4 words...poorly chosen ones at that.

  11. Tragedy, beautifully rendered. Uncorked this one. Let it breathe a while. Swirled it. Savored.
