"Faded" by Madasyn Andrews and Ceyda Baysal

March 4, 2017


Her value was dismal

Compared to the whims of the terrain

Gaea's locks, the most admired

Her yellowed pearls, the most desired

Her feathered choir chirps an enchanting tune

As the muse approaches a forbidden, free world

A girl whose perspective attracts awe

But whose structure inspires neglect

Mother comforts her,

Welcomes her to Life

Sprouting a love,

Never having faded
