And you take your words out on me
because you built me to be made out of steel.
But even the strongest metal breaks.
And the lightest feather sinks.

You visit the gravestone you placed
where my biggest dreams were buried.
And you leave a vase with flowers
that you purposely forgot to water.

A compilation of desires
that you now have turned into nightmares
lay down on that Victorian carpet
that you burned with indifference matches.

Leave the door open, so the wind can take what remains of my hope.
And close it when the warmth of the sun tries to come.
You hold me to let me go.
You make no promises but break them all.

Hello, My name is Brenda. I am a senior student at Texas A&M, majoring in Biomedical Sciences and minoring in Spanish. I have an enormous passion for reading and writing. My favorite books are Pride and Prejudice and Wuthering Heights. I enjoy practicing playing the piano and singing, for I believe music feeds the soul. I consider myself to be the biggest Disney Fan. My favorite movie of all time is Beauty and the Beast, and I dream of becoming a dentist one day.
