A Poem by And She Sings

This is something I didn't really know how to articulate.

You walk around with a smile 
and dull eyes.
The lights have been beaten.
Shattered by
the constant chatter
of your reckless mind.
I sit by and watch
my own heart break
while my words 
of love fall on
deaf ears.
The world will dare you
to be pushed around.
To be kicked when
you're already broken.
The world will dare you
to get back up.
Brush that chip
of your shoulder, darling, 
before it weighs you down.
Take a look in the mirror,
and tell the girl I love
that you love her, too.
She is the motivation
for my future.
She is the sum 
of my strengths.
She is the end
of my trials.
She is the world,
and I will give her a love 
fit for that and more
so she can give herself just
