Once upon a lonely night
a child's mind began to wander
upon some things she knew weren't right.
Her eyes closed once, and tears did fall
she dreamed of life & joy & smiles
but between her & these, there stood a wall.
Her eyes closed twice, & her blood ran cold
and as she dreamed of laughter, of love
bitterness - on her heart - took hold.
Her eyes closed thrice,she dreamed of a heart unknown...
and of a raging storm that swept her soul
because her lover's eyes had turned to stone...
Her eyes closed once more - her tears fell again
she dreamed of death, that blessed escape -
then she bowed her head & said, "Amen..."
She closed her eyes one last time, vowing her lids would never part...
But one last tear had to swell & stream down the cheek -
of a child who then died of a broken heart...

I really liked the unusual rythym you chose to use with this one....it really helped to make this poem work. Nice Job!
