Porcelain GirlA Poem by Susanna F
Where once the bloom of joy and fun
Lit thy cheeks and sparkling eyes
A pallor has fallen, blanching all
As the thin brume fades the skies.
A changeling you may be perhaps
These fifteen years taken hence
Or it may be a malignant ennui
Caused by some deep offence.
Your words became so few and far
I wondered where you'd gone
Your heart a stone, your laughs forgot
From former loves withdrawn.
Books and music and tales you left
For fear of Satan's call
You said you felt almost nothing
Was it into madness I saw you fall?
A friend and sister I once loved
Your spirit shimmered like a pearl
But that has long since been crushed
And you are left a porcelain girl.
