Humming Grief

Reading Time: 1 minute

An intense poem that transcends from the pain of to a sense of , by Elsy, in Different Truths.

hummed with

a stately grief

hemmed into her

for a long, long time.


Her pride she kept,

broke not down

knelt not down

bent not down.


Passing three score doorsill,

she took the five elements

and moulded her grief

into an alluring damsel.


She gave her wings,

gave her ,

and let her soar

above the skylines!
