Title: Melody...x

There once was a girl

Who was pretty and thin

Yet her looks could not hold

Her darkness within


Her eyes were just holes

Though they stalked in the night

And her hair used to shimmer

In the cold moonlight


Her youth was misleading

Her talents, advance

And although she had courage

She feared the chance


To escape her fate

To change her stars

So she remained silent

Hid behind her scars.


Yet when the world changed

And her heart was split

Her weakness was shown

She became a target.


She was only fifteen

But she pushed that aside

And for her friends she betrayed

To save them, she died.
