Day 5 #POEMADAY: Alexandra Cain
Can't you see me?
Can't you hear me?
I'm lay frozen in front of you
And my skin is turning a frosty blue.
It's cold out now
And I can't help but wonder how
How can you let a young life slip away?
How do you face seeing me each day?
In a place no one should call home
A place where silent ghosts roam
How can you judge?
When your heart is stone
Because I'm sat here alone
You don't know my story
You don't care because your life is full of glory
Then I wonder what if
What if you knew?
What if it was you?
Would you help
Would you scream and yelp
But there is only me
This isn't how it always use to be
I had someone, he promised to be mine
Our marriage was going fine
But then war came
And he was taken by the people I wish to blame
On a battle ground is where he died
And for days I cried.
Greedy figures took away my home
Here I am on the streets to roam
So now you know...
Why I've lost my glow
I am homeless
No fault of my own
So leave me here to die on this cold stone.
