The curtains were drawn closed
Not even a glint of light in between
Reminiscent of her clouded heart
Where only darkness could be seen

Cold and pale beneath the sheets
She found no comfort there
For life just passed her by
Leaving her unmoved with an idle stare

All passion and joy within her
Left as usual like she presumed it would
And all those unfulfilled wishes
Finally faded as she knew they should
