Like Dust


Absence crushed the heart
Leers thrown at
Jabbed her confidence.
Sympathy clad eyes
Like wolf dressed
In sheep skin.
Left alone to the
Beck of the world
Cornered at the
Dark alley.
Howling winds
Smothered her cries
Child of the wild
In her tattered clothes
Spend the days
Dreaming of a salve
To her pains .
Oblivious minds passed
Quickening their pace.
Light in her eyes dimmed
Innocence , naivety
Fallen away like
The milk tooth
Lost forever.
Hardened by the
Scabs of life
She rose like dust.
