Dark Artemis

What verdant limb


the remnant


my soul

that you hunt me?

What spore of heart

did I scatter,

that you

search me out?

My desire for freedom

is as deep,

if not deeper,

than your desire

to kill it.


as I flee your arrows,

my Dark Artemis,

I wonder if I’m really

searching for

a trap,

that you may

claim me


Or a corner,

where I must fight

to keep my heart,

or die a trophy

in your embrace,


And wonder

which I’ll choose…
