She is the vision of
grace and beauty, outside.

Her silenced voice
renders her dead, inside.

    Your poem is sheer perfection for this image. I’ve seen it before and it always struck me as someone who drowned and was now hung out to dry.

    Now I know what micropoetry is… a lot in few. Many with that fate unfortunately.

    Compliance. A willingness offered up or taken?

    Strongly worded in this interesting form means there is room to still wonder in the reading and interpretation, which is so well suited to this incredibly fascinating image. Well done.

    Oh, the thought of that silenced voice is powerful. So many women’s voices are, and have been.

    This is a powerful capture of the inner and outer worlds – what we see and what we cannot know.
