Gentle in word and form.
Burnished hair and painted lips,
Eyes lined with kohl.
Beautiful by any measure.
Dreams of tigers gnawing hands
and swallowed glass, slicing.
Powerless, falling, spiraling,
Landing on icy steps to jerk
Awake knowing talents
are invisible at best
and crushed completely on
Other days dreams of
Flying far with eagles.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “starts with gen.” Find a word that starts with “gen” and use it in your post. Have fun!
