as the world crumbles beneath her

she’s barely holding on

as the world crumbles beneath her

the sun didn’t rise this morning

it hasn’t for so long now

she’s forgotten what the warm rays feel like

everyday is filled with cold winds of regret and remorse

but she keeps getting up

continues to check

and when the darkness is all she can find

she dances in it

as tears run down her cheeks

she is a ballerina in the void

in her mind the light shines brightly

even if her heart has frozen nearly solid

her twisting and turning kicks up a small shower of sparks

somewhat keeping the eternal night at bay

one day she will have it all

today is not that day

little does she know the sun feels her steps

hears her call

it longs to answer

but the spell is too strong

her words barely a whisper

soon

soon the light shall cast away the shadows

and she will dance under the waves of shimmering light again

she just has to be strong

to hold tight to her belief it will happen

to make it real

for now she’s barely holding on

as the world crumbles beneath her
