Tears of the Piano Player

As if emptiness were spilling through
of the life she never had -- no tie to
the future to offer her a drop of any
hope, you could hear the loss of her
dreams in the keys and chords she
played; a stunted life at the age of
twenty one because no one would
let her grow, and all the time she
grew as a child in her ears she'd
only hear the word "no." To this
day if you see her under the open
sky you could pierce the veil of
her saddened nature; never a sign
of the slightest smile on her pretty
face, only shadows in her eyes
concealing memories past -- a tongue
so selectively mute that no secrets
could ever spill through. An introverted
girl with little personality; yet on rare
days an expressive face would shine
through. If she ever dared whisper
a prayer to heaven it would've been
snuffed out by a rush of wind,
making it only halfway there.
