Stony stares
Withdrawn smiles
Distant associations
Pretentious independence

Fierce she was
Fierce indeed

Fierce indeed
To those eyes
Eyes she labels the prying world

Darkened nights
Silent prayers
Tearful memories
Misplaced trust
She held them dear
She held them near

The fragility of those emotions
Sublime and pure
Privy only to the darkness of nights

Fragile she was
Only through her eyes!
