I sat on the edge of the rain cloud

I watched her fumble in the darkness

Half broken smile practiced on her face

Hot tears tinged deep in buried pain

In search of a tender box to mend

A coffin of feathers for her heart

A bed of velvet for her soul

And nothing left but the shell

Of something that once glittered

In the end, it was lost

Somewhere along the way

She learned it would never happen

The radiance of a true smile

Was long faded with the desert

I sat on the edge of a broken canvas

I watched her fall into the soot

I saw it stain her life

It burned into the veins that bled

It turned her world to ashes

At that exact moment she knew

She felt it in the pits of everything

I saw that she was doomed.
