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


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


  1. Beautiful. Reminds me of that point when as a young woman I realized that world can be a cruel place. Especially since I had no to guide me into adulthood.

  2. You got all dark and stuff. Imma gonna go cut myself now. Cheer up kid. You got a good life. ;)
