Exquisitely she weaved her way

Through feelings hidden every day

Tuned in to hear his heartbeats desperate plea

Occasionally when the clouds would form

She danced beneath the thunderstorm

Resulting in a raindrop jamboree

She held his soul in every step

Bereft of hope socially inept

A shadow on the wall of deepest black

His low profile had been exposed

The fanciful met the supposed

A kamikaze set to launch attack

She softened every granite cell

Brought heavens gift into his hell

Rebuilt the crumbling remnants left behind

Alive for the entire day

Her presence quickly washed away

The binds that had been tightening in his mind

It worked so well could only fail

A conjured angry force ten gale

Ripped every nail from four despairing hands

The void she left cannot be filled

Burnt bridges where the milk was spilled

Alone apart in very different lands
