A Swan Enshrined

97 27 13

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.
