In Despair

How did a soul so pure

become tainted with wickedness?

A change has overcome

a frail soul I once knew.

No longer does her

smile appear to melt

the worries of others away.

The sparkle in her eyes

has faded and are cloaked

with the coldness found in her heart.

Where is that girl all once knew?

Laughter has perished

and grief conquers all emotions.

Tears of sorrow become part

of the daily routine as this

angel of silence

seeks the one who'll save

her from eternal darkness.

Many have tried, but all failed,

for she has cast herself

into a life of seclusion.

Why are her actions so melancholic?

What does that heart hide?

Why does she suffer her painful fate?

Why do they stare as she dies

little by little everyday?
