    "Two figures stand before you. Choose one," says omniscient Fate.

    I close my eyes, queenly figure remaining. The darkness is consoling for me; cool and calm to overwhelm my own seething flames, I suppose. One could argue that the blackness is daunted by the bright, though I could disagree. Eventually flames die out, choked by oxygen so long ago stolen away. I am merely dead coals and ash, swept into a whirlwind of disregard and dishonor. Blank.

    And so I look upon the face of the opportunities long discarded first. A firm presence, one which is all too familiar, small but powerful. He is nothing but a faded ghost of remembrance, forced away by my own wrongdoings, but still enough to rekindle the black dust remaining in my chest. I feel a pang of longing somehow, though I know it is unjust. I am selfish.

    Now I allow my hollowness to glance upon the second, even if only for a moment. For once, curiosity alights in my dulled being, and I allow it. I recognize this soul; darkened as much as my own, but still carrying an element of necessity. He holds something far superior to me; something softer hidden underneath apparent harshness. Warmth. Fire, still burning deep within. I dare to hold his gaze. He dares to say, "You are more than this."
Inspired by the song "A Lady" by Tally Hall. Though this time, from the point of view of said lady....

This is what happens when I attempt to write any sort of poetry or prose. It ends up being a train wreck like this. Interpret it however you would like.

Hopefully it is categorized correctly.
