Imagine it

The moment she planned for

And sold her soul for

In her room a flickering flame


Believing it to be a dream

Her mind floating through a tunnel

Half a shadow, a golden light

Like a subtle painting


Eaten by the shadows

Everything she sought to keep

That is all it will take

Her name in ink..and paper


Imagine it

Her eyes wide opened
