Ophelia


ripped
out of her mind
a marvelous construction
thinking
no place; & you
not properly handled
Ophelia
&
you can't handle yourself
feeling
no inclination
toward that
solitude,
love
by yourself
Ophelia
& feeling free you drift
far more beautifully
than we
As one now understands
He never did see you
you moving so while talking flashed
& failed
to let you go
Ophelia
