Shadows dance

Shadows dance with pure delight
A little girl
With damaged sight
Her vision blurred
Her kisses stolen
A whisper of a dream on her lips
These shadows parade
 around her frame
Clicking heels
For she is game
For every tear
This sullen child weeps
A nightshade shadow
Arises from sleep
For there was fear
when she was happy
Elixir when she smiled
The potency of her courage
Would paint the world
A while
Now into the purple
She's taken a step
Yet a stubborn heart
Fights with so much
Shh! mama says
Dont let them hear
Dont let them see
For they steal pieces of what
You yearn to be
A bitter witch
A malevolent shadow
Beseeches in the darkness
Desperate to claim your song
