Cardinal Sin

He took her pure heart and untainted soul
he broke her spirit and dignity, left her (un)whole

he tore the skin from her bones, leaving no hope
but when all words hurled, no more damage done
while his demon scarred eyes looked on
her beautiful red wings unfurled
and she, with little left, flew.
He had not won
for she
was
free.
