Twisted spires of algific splendour,

Ascending, encapsulating the heart.

Twinkling beauty of icilic quantity,

Fracturing the power of solicitude; regard.


Prodigious courtyards of splintering fragility,

Confining  the outreach of tenderness and care.

Fluted corridors of magical luminousity,

Riming bosom, constricted, straitened.



Thawing hearts of darkness quenched.

Desecrated splendour submerged, retrieved.

Heart of tender, endearing attitude:

Falling spires, debility, deceased.
