Jaded

can you see the little girl
inside the woman
jaded
torn from the bliss
of her
innocence
can you see the sparkle
behind her eyes
faded

she keeps a small ember
of hope burning
insisting on destiny
to keep the world
turning

can you see the woman
inside the whore
tired
the one whose worth
you expired
can you see through the eyes
behind the wall
built to protect
her soul
from one more trip
or fall

she made herself easy
because being difficult
causes the same pain
a broken spirit
kills her name
