The world is filled with metaphors;
For metaphors is all she sees.
She steals a glance of silence
Pondering over what she once longed to be.
Her thoughts, striving hard to fight memories
Such memories that could have eaten her alive.
So she retreats to a comforting reality;
'All that seems real cannot fulfill
Thus it must one day die'.
