To fight

Reaching to the character
within the type
black beneath the white
coiled close, knitted tight
She waits to fight.

In the depths of a soul
raging to be whole
She’ll embrace a shattered heart
and gathering she’ll start
To fight.

Imperceptibly, she dares
surfacing, laid bare
shame and horror
Now to care
And painfully prepare
For the fight.
