I was standing there in the silence
Watching her from afar....
Far from the blinds of ignorance
The tombs, of narrow thought?!
A girl I had known many years ago
Years afore the darkened one's
Had come to maime her life....
Or at least, the sanity of her mind!?
Unfortunate this reflection; as I stood there
In the silence as I watched; I thought
To these the simpler views; perceptions
With these painted eyes; the shallow kind....
Caught in this web of perhaps, forever lost?!
The damned I thought, as I stood there
Amid the silence; the silence; silence
Until, the silence talked; ironic I thought
As I smiled upon her priceless Soul ~
Knowing the ultimate outcome; befalling the lost!?
Carried away, as I watched; while I watched....
