call me pandora

i was greedy
and curious and willful
i wanted it all
i opened that box
out flew lies out flew death
out flew everything
no one in their right mind would want

now i sit
in the autumn of my life
clutching that box
that holds my birthstone
and only my birthstone
an amethystine shimmer
that is my only treasure

i cling to life
on a slender thread
called hope
as a sapless leaf
catches on to a spiderweb
to avoid falling
to its death
