This original work and many more, is now available in Girl in the Trees, a new poetry book by Laura Wright.

It was an embittering vision, an unheard echoing scream,
And everything ended with that deathly sweet dream.
It was so pallid when compared to a hot, lusty night,
But, you were an end to the graying black and white.
I’ve never known someone so startlingly like me,
I’ve never cared for distraction that wouldn’t set me free.
But, there’s a beautiful vision in an unheard scream,
And everything ended with a deathly sweet dream.
