A Dying Work Of Art

January 19, 2010
She marked her eyes with beautiful.
Painted grace upon her hands.
Wore winsome words on top her tongue.
Adorned her head with golden strands.

Love was fastened 'round her neck.
Brick walls built 'round her heart.
Bitter sweets still stained her smile.
Her life, a dying work of art.
