Tale of sorrow


She wore darkness like a veil

hiding her sadness

sheltering the despair in her eyes,

shying away from life

not wishing for people to see

the tears that she shed,

the grief that she felt

for the lack of light

that she felt in her soul.

She could not ignite

or spark to life,

the grounded luminescent glow

and rather than seek help

she hid herself away

from her youth until she was old.
