A crying heart bleeds at night,
as a child in an adult's body
lets loose of all her sight,
as tear cloud her hollow eyes.

Nails tear at her soul,
and she cries in agony
as the pain takes its toll
and renders her defensless.

A battered girl stares blankly
into the dark and starless sky.
She writhes in emotional agony,
as ebony crystal tears fall.
