Inspired by the album artwork for "We Are The Fallen's" "Tear The World Down".
I imagined a post-apocalpytic world, where this little girl was walking through the dilapated ruins of a city at night. While a gunfight was happening. And that this girl was capable of surviving the crossfire since she was really something more than a child.
Extra Note: I've been made aware recently with this poem of "bad grammar". Unfortunately, there is no "bad grammar", only my own self-tyle of poetic licence which I used. Primarily because I've been wanting to think outside the box and break traditional conventions.
I will list a couple examples from the poem itself to clarify my reasoning behind their usage.
Stanza 1, Line 3: 'She wears a dress of shining...'
In this line I used 'of shining' to signify that her dress was white, but was so powerful it dazzled your eyes when you looked at it, giving the allusion of an angelic attire.
Stanza 3, Line 2: '...hands howling pain'
'Howling' is a word I used to put across a point that her hands were throbbing from pain, but I used 'howling' as though the pain was quite intense.
It was my intention for the poem to be like this, because if I wrote it any other way then it wouldn't live up to my own personal expectations.
Another point to clarify is I play around with words, and it's no mad or bad thing at times to step over a boundary and break the rules.
