Porcelain Girl

Porcelain Girl

A 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From former loves withdrawn.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.

I enjoyed reading it, if it was a bit sad. Wonderful poem.
