presence looming

presence
looming
be still
can’t read her thoughts
penetrate her spirit’s energy
leaving her vulnerable to the blades within her
marking her
a woman worn
scars hardened, unforgiving
wishing to be surround-sound encapsulated
to hear the layers of accompanyment
feel the beat
down
inside a mental coma
to die now
would be kind
and right
and so far from true

if only to die a peaceful surrender.
