behind her glossy cover that sparkles so nicely in the light
are pages people have stepped on that have bruised her to her core
and her binding is coming undone but she won’t let it break
because that’s not how she was written
and that’s certainly not her fate

it’s like staring at the black and white pages of a coloring book
because all of life’s hardships have stolen all her color
and the tears shed from her eyes have caused the ink to run together
making the happy and sad stories bleed together

and she’s such a pretty cover
with a title glittering in gold
but once you read her prologue
she’s been through more than you would think
because even with her beauty she’s just like you and me

and if i could just hold her
i swear i could shelter her from the pain
let my fingertips brush across her cheeks
to brush away her tears
and listen to her speak ’cause she needs to know i care

so i want to write her resolution
so she can smile again
but i lack the words to complete her latest chapter
i never was an expert, just a boy with a soft heart
so i’m grasping for the answers hoping that something that i write
will feel to her like nonfiction
because she really is a novel worth reading word for word
