Her eyes are droplets
that at will wax torrential
shredding scar tissue
revealing new flesh—
receding the Lake of Fire
where Archangel died
laying at the summit
of self-sacrificial vice.

Her hair is the daybreak:
cascading in waves
or ribbons of gold
irradiating potency
lighter than ash
that razes the sky,
and we hold our breath
for the cloudburst
Not used to writing free verse, but I enjoy playing with it. Hope it's decent.

Really like this. Got some good imagery here, like "ribbons of gold / irradiating potency / lighter than ash" and "Her eyes are droplets". 

Especially like the double use of "will" in the first stanza. Good stuff :3
