Existence explodes within her veins,
Grand pleasures collide with exquisite pains.
To be subsumes and swallows not to be,
Servitude skirmishes savagely with being free.
A momentary loss yields unmitigated gains,
Eyes wide closed; a vicious venture solely to see.
A simultaneous breath of life and death,
Beating through her brittle frame, existence,
Nevermore the same.
