Look, Solstice Girl

by Matters   Dec 28, 2005

Not my best work... just a warning.

Once there was a blackened girl,
Who lived in hidden fears,
Enjoying endless escapades,
Of burnt, acidic tears.

She'd bind herself to chambers,
Breath would frost cement,
She'd run, and he would maim her,
As she forced a warped repent.

One day, she was ready,
To fill her empty glass,
So she ran down to the water,
Followed by her past.

She paused for just a moment,
But that was all she'd need,
Her eyes gazed at the sky,
As her internal demons fleed.

And what she saw was dazzling,
True miracles, confined,
The stars on solstice night,
Could unknot any bind.

She ran back now, a free soul,
Her life would not be taken,
So when the day turns into night,
More than moons awaken.

Comments and votes greatly appreciated. Hopefully returned. *Insert guilty face here.*
