SHINE IN THE DARK

She was slowly fading away Deeper and deeper she fell It was like she was a living mannequin With no clothes on to attract Friends drifted away Maybe she was too weird, she thought With a closet filled with boring sweatpants and hoodies And no glittery shoes or stilettos.

This morning though, it seemed…
