Quailed Desires

She quailed her desires
in the darkest corner of her mind,
scared that the ruthless world
would ruin it,
and she stashed her yen
under the wrap of obscurity,
saving her eyes from welling
the bitterness brine

With such insanity
she led an ostensible life,
and now she assumed
it to be her true self,
wearing some phony smile,
and those brows
doesnโ€™t raise any more
when she experienced any love,
and that heart does sink
when someone said those terse words

Her world was superficial,
so was her charm,
and her thoughts narrow,
desires shallow,
her eyes were a lump of coal,
with no desire to ignite any glow

And when the hopes were tarnished,
and desires came to a grinding halt
he appeared from nowhere,
and embraced her in his magical spell,
but her jolted self,
refused to trust anyone,
and demeaned his thoughts
as some rueful play

He remained determined,
and never gave up on her
for his aberrant eyes,
could see beyond her defiant feel,
slowly he abraded her
one layer at a time,
exposing her soul,
dissolving her fears,
making her vulnerable,
and before she knew,
she was a free soul,
ready to meet him,
on the other side of life
