    True to her nature
    She is alone
    her heart replaced by stone
    its ache forgotten
    and its beating subdued
    dormant...waiting to be stung by the next...and the next..
    her eyes upon them with a childish cautiousness
    her mouth pressed thin from aged bitterness.
    her eyes take in the light, while her mouth barks and bites
    it is the guardian of her watchful eyes
    that are the windows to her dormant heart
    and her restless spirit.
    Will she ever release it and let loose words fly?
