Frightful words criss-cross the page
Memories mix with dried lilies and sage
Ink-freed emotions released to the eye
The daily recording of every tear and sigh
The parchment stained with salty tears
Smearing admittance to sins and fears
Pages torn and yellowed with age
Mirror a broken spirit; infected with rage
The last entry: painfully short and emotionally cold
Consequences of living outside the mold
Tired of running, forever recklessly alone
Today her body lies beneath a granite stone
A terrible heartache hidden beneath years of dust
Of endless hurt and unforgiving lust
The buck-skin diary protects all not said
Safe in a tomb, unaltered and unread.
