Eulogy for the Fairy Princess

Your words of sacred poetry

Take me back to the time

When I wasn’t broken

Before I was collateral damage

To the war fought over this body


You wrap me in a cloak of

Secret language

Sing a eulogy for my

Innocence lost

Evoke memories of

My heart whole

Soul pure

Hope and trust intact


This re-membering

Of unsullied past

Feels as mythical

As Santa Clause or unicorns

But you create the shape of me

In words so beautiful

So powerful

With such  sincerity

That even I can see

The shimmering outline

Of the girl I used to be
