Little Angel Child

Little Angel Child

She smiles to show the world her heart,

broken, joy just torn apart.

The frightened girl, who’s wandering through,

with wounded secrets etched in blue!

The fractured little angel child,

withered by life’s scars, not mild!

A dream she’s held has not come true,

her fairytales of love she knew.

The essence of her pain inside,

elixirs of her troubled mind.

Her clamber gropes but never finds,

her rhapsody of pantomimes.

The frightened little angel child,

her manuscripts of passions wild.

The smile is fading on her face,

another heartache she’ll embrace.

The scattered fragments of her soul,

resides in worlds she’s come to know.

Her scenes that capture life’s cruel side,

her buried dreams with gods collide.

A song.
