-Beautified Simplicity-

Lines of laughter crease her smile

Sparkling eyes have many stories to tell.

She's never old-only forever young-

Just wanting to see what Time has begun.

Watching and waiting for the sun to rise,

She looks up in wonderment with stars in her eyes -

A character trapped in real life, or so it seems

A modern-day Juliet with a dash of Romanov themes.

Waiting for her Romeo?

Nope - that's not her,

She's too far behind in memories -

Watching the ashes stir.

So what to do on a grey sky morning like this?

Dreams surround her awakened bliss,

Revelling in theories, recoiling from nightmares...

And still whispering ever so slightly of long-forgotten cares.
