Splitting Skull

Splitting Skull

A Poem by Raven Starhawk

Through ceaseless fabrications woven by the hunted
Channels narrow leading to Dante's peak
This cursed soul claws at earth in hope...
...of eluding misery destined upon her...
...as agony whisks through her...
...and rapes her mind with sorrow
A slave to pain, she breathes deep...
...while torture's storm settles throughout her being
And as her skull splits in two...
...she sees the fleeting world...
...through a veil of tears

A headache? This poem is great, I thought when reading it was inspired by some kind of relentless inner turmoil. Awesome
