Silently she stands there

As night falls upon her head

Depression embraces her body weak


As her heartbeat falls upon her chest

So does her tears fall upon her cheek

In heaven she might do well

With this angelical look


On earth she casts her spell

Upon the pain

Which within she dwell

As beauty slowly fades away

Darkness covers her face

Withdrawn from this place


Within darkened melancholy deep


For sunshine’s return

But still standing


And as her heartbeat

Still slowly falls upon her chest

So does the teardrop upon her cheek

In heaven she might do well


On earth she casts her spell

Upon the pain

Which within she dwell

Dear Tinka,
You have such inimitable style. This poem is haunting in its imagery. I get a picture of huge soft eyes etched by pain.
Great job!

I agree with Eileen, Tinka; lots of blue writes around today - maybe we all need those 'Happy Injections.' That is a captivating picture, though.
