Dragonfly Skin

Dragonfly Skin

Their was a case of a pretty girl who everyone thought she was beautiful even tho she was oblivious to them...

Everyone wanted to meet her and see her and she enjoyed playing outside but she had a slight problem...

The poor girls skin was so fine and delicate it could rip and tear at the softest of touches...

Her nails were like paper and her hair could even rip with the gentlest of brushes...

Indoors is where she was usually kept like a bad secret or a bad word so quiet in the dark...

From afar she would watch bitterly as the birds sang in the trees and all the other children played in the park...

Eventually indoors wasn't enough to keep her from cuts she looked as if she had been in a scrap...

They didn't know what to do with her they tried pillows, bandages, and even bubble wrap...

Putting her in a box seemed like a good idea but even the cardboard was harsh and she didn't like the gloom...

Then thinking what if we put her in a glass case with a mattress on the wall in the front room...

This was then her fate to be kept in a frame mounted like some kind of trophey much to her owners pride...

She would watch everyone come and have tea and chatter about her but at least she could see outside...
