Perfection contained in a skeletal frame,
unrivaled elegance granted her unwanted fame.
A delicate swan worthy of being idolized,
immortalized by dark fantasies, tainted reflections in her likeness.
She begs for the mercy of sweet genocide,
a royal creature, graceful and timeless.
Angelic, worshipped and reviled,
free, youthful and delightfully wild.
Infatuation, enshrined in exquisite isolation,
she floats on a lake of acidic tears.
Her beauty could topple nations,
attracting the attention of poisonous leers.
Royalty pleaded to make her a queen,
but the swan fled for the distant seas to remain forever clean.
