Case History

I would like to have known the girl in the photograph.
My mother's youngest child,
she was so proud of her.

Her big blue eyes looking up,
such a delicate thing.
Many wonders about this big world,
Which I am living in.

The sparkle in her eyes shines with confusion and curiosity,
now I wish she never saw it.
She was happy but I am the opposite,
I wish she was here but.... I think she is.
Deep inside.

She wore a beautiful dress,
Granting her wish to be a princess.
I am in a fairy-tale,
but I'm stuck as the damsel in distress.

I am her future.
