little by little

in solitude she wanders
trapped by the silence

caged by the trees
in her forest of sapphire

she glows like the sun
from silver to gold

yet chooses the darkness
to blanket her shoulders

she hugs the pain within
and the emptiness throughout

like her longtime friends
the rain and the clouds

in moments of weakness
she cries to be free

to let go of the guilt
and the regret and the fear

but all she can do
is break off pieces of her soul

and little by little
let them carry her hopes

to fly high and laugh
like leaves in the sunshine

to drift far and rejoice
like butterflies in the moonlight
