Happy birthday

Twenty one

scared brown eyes

(because of that awful

sense that we are nothing

but dust in the universe)

Wandering while wondering

(Putting pieces of her soul

back together just to

throw some of them away)

Walking through the fire

coming back again

through the smile

(when she burns she

feels so alive)

Endless nights

crying stars

her home

(you stared your

way out)

See her side

into her eyes

when the colour

leaves her face

(know –

she never

moved on)

It was simply easier to walk away.
