Cold as winter,

Strong as stone;

She faced the darkness

all alone.

A silver goddess;

a reflection.

A mirage,

a recollection.

No return;

No turning back.

The past is gone,

the future black.

Serpents gather,

in their nest,

and she stands

above the rest.

Shadows hunt;

she hunts the shadows.

The moon has risen; she stands below.

She views her world

through the eyes of others.

Black and white,

There are no other colors

As she looks down upon

a shattered youth.

A shattered mirror ,

shows a shattered truth.
