Sister Psychosis

Sister psychosis
Are the words that
Describe the hurt and
Yelling being severed
From its quiet twin

And all the pictures
Coming on strong.  How
Wrong the destiny of the
Lone traveller with a

Hurting heart, and the
Clammy press of friends' hands
Stricken by fear, and

Lying.  And all the
Sick sympathy unreal
Bleeding hearts. Sister

Psychosis is a
Woman of many parts -
Cut diamond that I am
Shining brilliantly

And fit to adorn
My new and lovely
