turn turn, the page

story dire
narrative upended
agonizing into arc
plight asunder
heroine in chains
hanging on
a twisted scale
ravaging odds
torment looms
violated binds
sadistic titillation
raw apprisals

turn the page
turn turn, the page

a hero unknown
privileged apart
ravenous climb
awash in neglect
the grinding wheel
eclipsing hope
infectious ennui
ringing hollow
cold hearts
the breath
choking off
of silent cries

turn turn, the page
