New Day


she was captivated by his charm
enthralled by his beauty
until she reached out and felt his heart
it was ice cold and as soft as a rock
stumbling back, his words brushed her soul
at first they sounded kind,
but the meaning behind them was sharp
the slash drew blood as she turned away
she ran into the lingering touch of twilight
tripping into a forest of stardust
she pushed on through the whirlwind of dreams
until the fingers of morning light caught her hand
just before her legs gave out
the birth of a new day filled her sleep with peace.
