Truth Decay

The day he moved in he started 
packing all of her away.
She barely even noticed her 
personal truth decay. 
Her mirror reflected shadowed eyes, 
echoed her quiet dismay.
Without a breath in her defense she 
was a captured castaway.
She barely even noticed her 
personal truth decay. 
Naively she didn't stand as he kept 
her friends at bay.
Without a breath in her defense she 
was a captured castaway.
The home that she had filled with 
dreams disappeared when she 
disobeyed.

Tristesse dans la Solitude

I will not lie down before you,
Without a care for who I am.
I am not for the highest bidder
To take for a tinker’s damn.

It’s clear I have a broken heart
My worth not taken by love
But I’ll always abide by a strong lady’s creed
To stand and rise above.

Loneliness won’t kill me
Nor will a lovers glare
My worth not defined by a valentine
But….. I’ll fade and there’s not one to care.

I’m alone and there’s nobody coming
To kiss me or hold my hands
I can feel the heart in me harden
To prepare for the cold barren lands
