She sits hidden away in her room alone with her toys that
kiss her and hold her tight turning turning dancing in
the shadows trailing her hair in the dust catching
patterns in the light...
She sees creatures behind the glass crying with a voice
she heard once in a childhood dream falling through a
window she once shattered clawing her face to escape
wings that beat inside her head...
She smiles down at the flowers and leaves she saved for
all those years now gone mingled with memory tears and
laughter sharing hero's fanfare hidden away behind walls
living on in candlelight...
