a doll unfeeling, lives her life in darkness, wondering if anyone cares, if anyone sees who she is.

like a doll,

unfeeling,

she sits perched on the windowsill,

bathed in the light of the moon,

enjoying the sweet darkness of the night,

only to hide from the piercing rays of the sun,

one who must always hide in the shadows,

Is anyone there?

can i come out now?

will someone see me,

hiding in this palace of darkness?

maybe i prefer it this way,

in this palace of unfeeling darkness,

i am safe,

i am alone.

darkness once again comes,

and i sit on the familiar seat by the window,

thinking,

wondering,

is anyone there?

does anyone care?

about me or my wasted life?

such i foolish question i know,

for everyone who ever met me,

they will be burdened by the death of one they had met,

even if it was one such as me,

one who hides in the dark,

shadowy recesses of ,

the palace of darkness.
