Pandora's Box (Crown Cinquain)

She should 
have known better
than to take glimpses inside
her Pandora's box of hidden 
secrets 

What she 
saw reminded
her she still craved true love
Deep within, her forgotten dreams
shone still 

The pain
struck her heart like
an axe, made her soul bleed
crimson tides; virile years wasted
lost.... gone!

She tried
desperately
to close the lid; to darn
her gaping heart; to file and store 
yearnings

Wishes,
fantasies; hope
deluded, she tried to 
regain control of emotions
exposed
