Live to the point of tears.

Silence veils the bitter walls,
spirits hindered, glass tears fall
poison needles spike her veins
reminders of the thriving pain
tiny hands clasped she asks god why
petrified to say goodbye
imprisoned, lost, she looses faith
prick, breathe, drain, sedate
savage disease, shatters her dreams
tearing her apart at the seams
locks of honey cashmere, evanescent
faint, and frail, impassioned torment
pale plum lips, frosted, numb
will the sun break through, will she succumb
Wasted from this lethal curse.
she craves this vicious spell reversed
sinister lies, in twilight she cries
Heartless tears drop from her eyes,
grasping her hand, a part of me dies
