Falling To Rise (Inspired by 'The Black Swan')

She gave birth to herself
Re-shaping reality
Erupted through the sanity of her soul
And seeds of her understanding
Through her suffering
A peace was found
That only she would ever know as real
That only she would ever feel
Unravelling through the fall
She embraces euphoric bliss
And knows perfection in madness
For a moment
Ceases to exist
Weaving a riddled truth
From her sweet sun stained tears
And splintering kisses
In her midnight black feathered sight
A meaning is shattered and made
All at once
Her mothers gaze
Is the dawning of her night
And she stands in the half light
Dancing in the shadows of her other self
