She is strong, invincible, fearless
She goes through the day with a brave face--
Plowing on so innocently, it's decieving.
Her smiles are contagious
Her laughs are like free candy
She is your best friend,
Your rock, your shoulder to cry on
Your support beams and the arms you can fall into
She is the back of your hand, and every freckle on it
She is a Knight in shining armor
And she might have saved you, once, or twice.
But, come night?
The darkness consumes her.
She is scared, afraid, fragile
Her face is frozen in downcast sorrow
Her plow is broken, and the snow is suffocating
There are no smiles.
No laughs that make you feel great inside.
No one knows who she truly is
--as she sinks
--as tears fall down her face.
