A Suite of Pain and Hope

It is burning bright
Underneath the canopy.
Leaves hide it from sight.

Drifting in her thoughts
The searcher seeks the lost dream.
Misfortunate find.

There is the delight
Twinkling to beckon her near.
Trusting the unknown.

It happens once more
She accepts the offered light.
Her cheeks glow with hope.

Brightness can be dark
Coming from an evil soul.
Consumption begins.

How often they rip
The pride from her seeking heart.
It happens again.

Trust is a virtue
If offered to the worthy.
Fear the black troller.

Hard lessons are learned
Through pain and sorrowful loss.
Train your heart to heal.

Shiny people burn
When touched by pure tenderness.
She proves her life's worth.

You find what you seek
Only with wide open eyes.
Penetrate the fogs.

It is your respect 
You gain for yourself this way.
Be the one you are.
