Shining like a pearl drop,
It trickled down her cheek
Glistening, it rolled of her chin
As the truth began to seep.
The millions of her beautiful dreams
which would open the world's door,
Now snapped like fragile pieces of glass
And shattered down to the floor.
The shiver she had felt when he looked at her
His presence which had filled her days with light
The ecstasy she had felt at his smile
Now left her side and gave way to night
Her heart screamed out in pain
As her eyes fixed on his image
The picture seemed to stab her soul
