Nov 2016
There she lies
frozen in time
The warm, sweet sun
seeps inside
Caresses, falls down
the little girl
And wraps around

I will take you from this place
I can help,
you mustn't wait
Come with me and you will find
Joy and love that only binds

It cannot be
and never will
Of what you speak
has since been killed

She felt it once,
it swept her in
Little girl
fell into sin
It pulled her by the hand,
it found
She nods her head,
and it pulled down

Drowned in brokenness,
She put on a different face
She sat there empty
thinking of
The melody
she heard in love

Now she sits alone and stares
When someone looks
she does not care
She can't, she fears another day
when it could never be that way
