She Stood

She Stood (1)

She stood in the shadows
And remembered the day
Stood at the corner
And heard all they say
Stood in her bedroom
And started to sway
Stood in the market
Thinking someone should pay
Stood in her dreams
Cries here to stay
Stood at a precipice
Agony never at bay
Stood alone
Memories fresh as that day
The day her parents we’re gone
No longer available
Not able ever
To come and play

In The Silence

In The Silence

In the silence she missed him
In the silence she cried
In the silence she dreamed of once
In the silence she tried
In the silence she remembered
In the silence she smiled
In the silence she called to him
In the silence stared wild
In the silence she kicked the covers
In the silence she screamed
In the silence she wept allowed as
His memory could never be undreamed
