I’m just a girl

Surrounded by dark

Trying desperately

To light a spark


Create some light

This moonless night

Where pain

Is forever ripe


To be harvested

Typecasting me

In role of damsel

So weakly in distress


In a mind trained

To redress that fear

Pretend it’s all okay

To ignore these tears


Out of her mind


If her tired mind

Will ever again

Be kind
