she was a swan

dancing alone at the lake dreaming about true love hoping for the better life

they said, “she's beautiful” “she's pure” “sadly... she's weird, losing her mind”

she heard, she knew everyone talked behind her whispered something that should've not been said

her bright self darkened her smile faded her steps stopped

she was a swan who wondered how was life not been trapped in the box

she flew away wherever her white delicate wings brought her searched for enchantment of being free
