Caged

She lived inside shadows,
wandered within imprints
of quarried darkness,
tolerated bleak embraces
of hopelessness.
Her unreasonable fear
of the sun imprisoned her soul.
Yet her spirit wished for more.
A step into the bright unknown
could surely bring about
a lethal dose of caged light.
Yet she was willing
to die in the attempt.
