Decay of Beauty Jan 20 2010

She was a beautiful soul filled with love,
then suddenly her innocence was taken away.
Losing all hope, joy and trust,
she gets angrier a little more each day.

She emotionally shut herself down,
and then the voices filled her head.
The violence began during her fits of rage, 
seeing only shades of red.

Her evil eyes could burn right through you,
and she speaks with an intimidating tone.
When the anger sets in, the rage will soon follow,
just walk away and leave her alone.

Locked away from the entire would, 
now labeled a danger with no control.
A minor glitch just adds fuel to the fire,
unfortunately the rage has consumed her soul.

Lost to all the insanity she feels,
will she ever make it back.
Take it slow, one day at a time,
with a little help her life can be put back on track.

    Not a badly written entry. In the third line of your first verse, "loosing" is correctly spelled "losing". Your descriptiveness and rhyming looks good the rest of the way.

    Through your words I am given hope for a new track of my own. I hope she finds hers and I find mine. Well done
