Viciously wiping away at her tears,

calming her thoughts –

that’s how she spends her nights.

Trying to forget every battle

she’s ever fought.

Their tongue, the sharpest blade;

once spat, forever remained.

Etched so deeply into her delicate skin,

screaming “read all my deadly sins”.

All her wounds left open

for the world to see,

laughing as they watched

her break so effortlessly…

      1. The subject of this poem (most likely unbeknownst to herself) is a brave and courageous warrior princess who does battle nightly with dragons and demons that the vast majority of people can’t even fathom and comprehend.
