The Lore of RainbowsThe Lore of Rainbows

The Virgo

It's her. 
The one who listens to her heart. 
The one, who battles all brutes apart.

 

It's her.
A heart, turned graveyard.
With buried hopes, 
Which were torn apart.
There are skeletons hung,
On the trees of memories,
The skeletons of her dreams,
Glittering, yet burnt.

It's her.
The one, who speaks to her heart.
While it whispers her, motivation.
It teaches her, it's never too late to start.

It's her.
A conquerer, cause she knows how far she has come. 
She counted the corpses,
Of so many dreams that died. 
In the war of survival, in life. 
It was tough
Cause it was her loved ones against.
It was her parents, her family that fought.

It's her.
Gazing at the battle fields, stained with the blood of sacrifice.
Sacrifice of her will, 
She chose her true self, but lost what once she loved.
Yet, she stands still, brave.
Watches all the bonds of blood, wither and burn.

It's her.
Who witnesed an apocalypse. 
And survived it with pricks and stabs.
Wounded to the core, yes.
But didn't let it show, perhaps.

It's her.
Standing still, enrolled within a torn clothing of confidence.
The one who had lost her empire of hopes. 
Then the clouds slid away, made way for the sun. 
Light touched her, glorifying her existence.

It's her.
Who wandered into a forest,
Who created the jungle, her empire, 
Wild and care free, just as she was.
She turned the skeletons of her dreams, her throne.
While a wolf sat by her, whom she caressed.

It's her.
With a heart, cracked on the inside.
Held together, by ice, cold.
Impossible, it feels to melt the ice
And mend her heart a whole.

It's her.
Who one day, wandered back to the world. It seemed familiar, but she was alien to them. 
She is a human, but they made her feel, isolated.
She was on earth, but felt like on some other planet. 

It's her.
Who tried to create doorways, millions of them.
To jump out of the disgust, they have landed her into. 
But, as soon as the door opened, 
Each door took her to another planet.
But not one, to go back.
To go back to what she remembered this place as.
Peaceful, flourished with acceptance.

It's her.
Who lost hope, yet conquered it back.
It was just another challenge to her.
She just needed a spark, to put her back on track.

It's her.
Who one day finally succeeded.
As she found a door that took her back to the earth. 
The earth with humans.
Compassionate, loveable and peace-loving.

Her heart grew red roses,
Oh, the ice had melted.
The warmth of tenderness of love, spread around, 
While the graveyard turned a garden.
She aerated love, wherever she walked.
There were sprinkles of happiness, often.
