The Girl with a Rainbow in Her Eyes

May 5, 2008
By Ashley Scamehorn, Conyers, GA

She walks sidewalks
Between Childhood
And Reality
On her pale face
Remains eternal smiles

She is the Girl
With a Rainbow in her eyes
Sparkling blues and
Dazzling greens
Burning golds and
Somber grays
Her eyes show more
Than what they see

She is the Child
Society wants to
She is the Woman
No lover wants to

I know all of
Her Secrets
She knows all of
My Pain
Behind each brilliant smile
Lies a hallowed heart
For the girl with
Rainbow Eyes
Is me
And I am
Her prison
