She was always in silence, amongst the blacks walls

Her passion was beginning to fade, perhaps she's seen it all

As the walk in crisp air, with no shadows to follow

She set out to seek what was no longer in sorrow

The water that became ice in an instant, it would never fold

The lies that filled her mind, all the things she was told

As a heart will always remain broken, never easily to mend

She set forth to a new journey, to Hollows End

As a block, became two, then a mile became more

It was a first that she's ever walked this far before

Until she finally came to a black stoned brick wall

It was there that she touched as the bricks started to fall

As a light was cast among this new place which her footsteps attend

She thought to herself that she finally found Hollows End

While she walked and pondered at this new sight

New thoughts had aroused, telling herself she was able to fight

The waterfalls, The Fairies, Mockingbirds & white roses all around

She couldn't believe it herself that Hollows End has been found

For it was to good to be true, to set eyes on such site

As her visions of fear and worry, in that moment turned into such delight

It felt like days, years even, that she never left that place

As she started to feel in her thoughts this couldn't be all it takes

What felt like forever was only trapped in her mind

For she was still alone, in the dark, only frozen in time

While she laughed and smiled with those she met in Hollows End

She was still deep in sleep, & stuck with the pain they couldn't mend

The days have gone by as she skipped throughout the meadow

The nights were filled with stars, as if she could look until tomorrow

Sunlight so bright, never once rain or snow

The light breeze in the trees, As all the nature continued to grow

At the home which she slept, those around her began  to wept

As they were told of what may happen if she never recovered

While the harm and conflict that was bestowed to her life

No one around her ever knew, never bothered to ask if she was alright

While the scars and the bruises showed no sign of healing

It was clear where she laid, she had lost all feeling

Others blamed themselves for not being there

When deep inside she knew it was only her, no one else's blame to be shared

The weeks became months, as months became years

That she surrounded herself with the sunlight and stars, never a feeling of such fear

Until one day she stopped suddenly while she was walking down a path

It was in that moment she thought about the life she used to have

As this question filled her mind a stranger approached

Told to take the hand before her, as she was lead to see what should've already been shown

They traveled in silence for a moment or two

As the coldness came back and the darkness once more

She remembered in her mind, that she's been here before

While they walked in silence on the cold black ground

It was the sight before her, wasn't very easy as she found

Screaming and yelling, banging on several doors

Fires among houses, murder and several missing, more than before

As nothing looked familiar everything was so strange to her

She started to feel what she hasn't in a while, the beginning of so much hurt

While she was lead to the place where several stones lay

The sight which she saw, made her glance with nothing to say

A stone with a name and the dates, everything that was taken away

Willow will always be our angel, was all that it said

She couldn't believe her eyes, as all the pieces fell together

There was a reason why she never wanted to leave and stay there forever

As they walked back down the cold black road

She shivered in silence as she was handed a coat

The warmth she received as she put it on

Yet the reality set in, that she was really gone

Walking once more to the black stone bricked wall

She was stopped by the stranger and handed a necklace that held it all

As she looked at the beautiful emerald, the faces for which it showed

Everyone she's ever known and loved stayed with her as it was clamped around her neck

As she took the hand that was held in front of her they walked once more through the wall

The light began to shine as the warmth filled her body once again

She walked back in knowing that this was her place, her safe haven

This was Hollow's End

A very intriguing tale you've spun here. Even the name "Hollow's End" is catchy. It held my interest right along.

...just bein' Bluesy
