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...
