    She stands by the sink barefoot,
    staring into a mirror reflection carrying more than the shape of her perfection
    but the silhouette of the seed that soaks in the nutrients,
    from her veins, the fruit of her womb,
    the child that will overcome to her exact beings,
    inheriting, her every breath, whim, weakness
    and the essence destroying poison flowing in her veins,
    that the small piece of the universe that resides within her
    might one day become something greater then the universe itself,
    or crumble under the weight of being born into the trap of addiction
    dim pale lights fleeting through the swaying curtain
    by the window with the broken glass
    a room with trapped dreams
    where souls escape bodies for momentary pleasure,
    but get lost within the moans and wails of the house
    never to return. where death is a sweat release
    because life's just become to much hassle
    She stands infront of this broken mirror,
    grief chipping tha paint on the walls,
    infront of a sink, soiled with the residue of
    stolen life, slight smell of insanity mixed with
    a sliver of hatred and poverty. or maybe
    deprivation,
    ..destitution,
    .........hunger,
    Poverty................
    Whichever the scents
    She stands infront of this mirror hungry for life
    infront of a sink draining her conscience
    she stands, beside a wall of choice,
    because the window of opportunities faded
    more like shattered into jagged pieces, cutting the betters
    of hopes and dreams, no deliverance
    she stands infront of the sink,
    starving for a thrill, bearing the face of tomorrow in the
    warmth of her womb
    She splashes her face with the cold running water
    and makes her way back into the bedroom
    where legs will fly, backs will hunch
    complete strangers caress intimacy, secrecy,
    passing on potentially more then ecstasy but
    a curse that will continue to take .....possibly to epidemic heights
    but heat will overcome the fear,
    and the common sense will drown in passion
    and hopefully another
    thrill will be satisfied till next time,
    .......................Hopefully

    The picture you painted with words is tearfully sad, but potently real. This was written with such depth poet. Wow.
