Modern Day Eleanor

Updated on June 26, 2015

Be careful of the songs that you hear for they may stick with you.

"I miss the person I used to be"

Read the sign upon the tombstone

Of a girl who grew tired

Of keeping her face in a jar by the

Door. It was a visage

Created by the desire

To fit into a world in which

She did not belong. She walked in

Silence. Drowing in the noise

Of thoughts that would not go

away, she dreamed of the words

He would write for the sermon

That no one would hear. Quietly,

She wipes the dirt from her hands

And walks away from her own grave.

      Thanks Gypsy. It was just a quick thought that I had one morning while I was listening to the Beatles.
