A Child

Tear my heart

From my chest

It beats no more

Broken in pieces

Floating inside my soul

I trusted

A laughable fool

A child

Believing all I was told

Transparency

In my smile

Given freely

For all to behold

But no more

My spirit gone dark

One last flicker of hope

Held afloat

Snuffed out and gone
