Trapped…

~

She is trapped…
Trapped in a jar…

The world still rotates…
Yet it feels so bizarre…

Everything has stopped…
No longer controlled…

There is no warmth…
She feels so cold…

She appears brand new…
But her pasts been re: written…

And in this new world order…
It’s a struggle to fit in…

Leaving her lost…
As darkness consumes…

She sees no light…
And depression looms…

She tries to fight…
Struggles to stay sane…

They tell her it’s normal…
Tell her she’ll gain…

Become a better human…
Through this struggle…

The experience is rich…
She just needs to juggle…

And paint on her face…
Show no sign of weakness…

Shine every day…
See past this bleakness…

And block out of her mind…
Cruel winds that whisper…

Stop picking her scars…
In fear that they’ll blister…

And hide all the cracks…
The tears in her eyes…

Block it all out…
And try to disguise…

That she is simply trapped…
And verging on madness…

This beautiful Firefly…
With a heart full of sadness…
