Perpetual child

She fell from the sky

Sipped from the fountain

Abandoned her lyre,

Severed wings and sold crown

Signed over the deed

To her soul and marked wild.

Crawled on the ground

And walked through the fire,

Eternally bound

To this earth, all the while,

Buying her time

To be found by desire

A lover she could admire.
