She Walks in Beauty, by MelissaJMc Subscribe to rss feed for MelissaJMc

She walks in beauty as the sky fills her eyes
The clouds are low and so is she
Not a witness to the wondrous nature around her, she sobs
And rocks pierce into her feet painfully
She sees a trail ahead but somehow is now lost
That was not the trail she wanted to take
It's path is just a little too worn
She wants to walk somewhere where she has to push away 
branches with every step; Swatting at the mosquitos thick 
in the humid air
Never to feel the cool breezes again, she said
Never to feel the real thing
