Just.. Something I came up with.
I need advice and help with it tho.
Carried away in a wooden box
Thoughts trapped inside
No heartbeat, no tears,
A single soul showed up
To throw roses as she
A single soul, shattered.
A single note
Of how fate works its cards,
How she dealt them.
The maiden, with the dark hair,
She folded on her first
Played the game with nothing
Ended, with nothing.
As the roses fell, a lowlife
Peasant cascaded the dirt
Into the hole.
A hole filled with maggots, and other
Not a place for a maiden.
The townspeople, they feared her,
She was as different as the
Scars on her skin,
As was the man, the man
Who laid down roses.
He, as well, was feared, both
He was the only one to treat
Demon marks, possessed by the Devil.
Nobody saw the girl inside, afraid.
Crying out, nobody heard.
Besides him. He carried her off
To a peaceful place into the woods.
His frightening exterior meant nothing to her,
He held her tight, and that’s what mattered.
The storms within her passed, and
She was the maiden everyone loved,
Full of live.
The man, thought he would lose her, afraid,
So every second he got, he tried to make it last.
They stayed in the woods, for awhile after that,
Sharing days, sharing memories together.
She was everything he needed.
And he was everything she needed.
Until that day.
Before dawn, she set out to adventure, leaving
Him a note.
She walked through the terrain, tripping
Every now and then, until she came upon
A river, one she’d never seen
She sat down, and gently
Poured the cool water upon her
She was calm, relaxed,
A feeling of sanity flowed through her.
The water seemed to heal
The skin that could never
She ran through the woods, back
To the house, to tell the man
Of the new discovery she had found.
Oh, how happy she was.
She wanted to run back to town
Showing them how normal she was
Finally being accepted.
The man, had his doubts, but never
Voiced them, allowing her to
She arrived in town, and the people
Greeted her with open arms,
Like they had accepted her this whole time.
They invited her into their house,
Invited her into their conversations,
And invited her into their lives.
The days went by, and she seemed happy,
Even though she left the man she loved.
He thought of her constantly,
Awaiting for her arrival.
She seemed so free, so at ease.
Suddenly, there was a sharp pain
On her leg. A burning sensation.
She let it pass, until more of her skin started to
She was afraid, and gently pulled up her
Redness, swelling, blood
Came from the scars, that were hidden before.
They terrorized her skin,
Engulfing her body in agony,
She screamed, and the townspeople looked
And were disgusted.
They walked away, leaving her to her
The next day, the man got sick
Of waiting for the girl, and began to go into town,
Searching for his darling.
He finally found her, after hours of looking,
And kneelt down beside her, her body limp,
He skin battered, covered in blood.
He held her tight, and walked away with her
In his arms.
She was safe.
Nobody could hurt her now.
