My Hopes, Memories and Dreams

Only Sixteen

She was only sixteen

They said

Her juvenile notions but fleeting

Extinguishable by a puff

of clandestine condemnation

Like sixteen candles

Stuck helplessly

On vanilla sponge

with cream

 

She was only sixteen…

Caught at the mercy

of life so confounding

Deceit and damnation

The only maiden offering

Her will torn

Dismembered

Anchored in roots

….turned rotten

Whilst visions in shades of joy

and hope

Flickered mercilessly around her head

 

…I was only sixteen
