Featured Writer: Daginne Aignend



Such a pretty young woman,

her slender lithe body framed

by the soft velvet red light

An invitation to come

into her world of delicacy

She smiles,

without a sparkle in her dead eyes

She shines,

due the resplendence of the lanterns

Eighteen years old,

fallen for the false lure

to find a better place,

to provide for her family

Devoid of money,

she’s forced to spread her legs,

just to survive

An insecure future,

an unknown country

This little flower

will slowly fade
