Genius in a Bottle


She is awake

Illustration by author

Waiting in darkness
Wading in sorrow
Wrapped in guilt
Wasteful of time

No more loss
Awakening, come
Regret, unwelcome
Minutes, sped up

Energy drawn, long-buried in soul
See what can be done
Watch what may become
Let the old girl out of her cage.
