Her Shallow Loss

A turmoil within the heart so fine Shows a light not like any before Tenderness unknown as besought A life so free she forgot the score Inside her eyes, a wild girl exists She’s a woman of awesome insight Nothing brings this piece forward Completely shadowed within the light She lives in mild pain, it’s always there Shallow wants eclipse compliance Period of nothing is brought forth There’s no life other than defiance Now a tug of war is within her Playing her soul as a puppet Pain shoots through her lonely heart Whatever is true she won’t forget Potentially the world lead her down The whole place sends chills through her No words can place it perfectly here The life she leads is just a blur

    Sounds like deeper than shallow, for you have made it seem like something horrible in her life, Russell. An it evokes the lonely feeling you wrote of. Well, I hope you had a marvelous xmas day. I bet you were decorated to the hilt!!
