“A kiss holds a million deceits”…

girls

~

No one quite gets her…
No one really understands…

Just a little lost lady…
Reaching out her hands…

Looking for something…
And someone to hold…

No payback for her bravery…
No reward for being bold…

She wants to be loved…
But they only see her past…

The scars and the damage…
Too much history amassed…

As time and time again…
They’ve treated her like dirt…

She’s chosen the men…
They’ve repaid her with hurt…

Not seeing the love…
She could offer to them…

And one by one…
They’ve slowly condemned…

This beautiful creature…
To a life in the shadows…

Fighting a darkness…
That only she knows…

And now she sits quietly…
Waiting for the phone…

Fighting ghosts of her past…
And fighting them alone…

Desperate for someone…
To give her a sign…

To gently whisper to her…
That it’ll all work out fine…

And her prince will come…
Upon his white steed…

Sweep her off her feet…
At heart racing speed…

But until that moment…
She stares out of the window…

Trying to numb the pain…
Whilst her life’s stuck in limbo…
