Weighted Down

She had boulder center blocks

In place of her finger tips

The years painted her nails with unspoken dreams

Whispers of angels tried to guide her

Unable to tie her shoes

Callouses grew on the soles of her feet

Unable to touch the earth

Deception and asphalt cover her heart

Venom dripped from her lips

Consuming the hearts of men

Fur covered her skin

She grew tough against the wind

And forgot about the sun
