She hides behind

She hides behind the convent of her heart.
Where everything is hid and sacrificed,
And ploughs the calmer waters she can chart.
To deeper seas, she will not be enticed.
Behind her gates she looks out on her world,
To see the roses bloom then fade away.
For bitter are the hopes that lie unfurled,
About her feet, lay broken and decayed.
The world outside is wild and full of fears,
Where laughter and despair are bittersweet.
It’s passion and desire and of her tears,
That fall amid the sound of distant feet.
She saw the glories of the world, displayed,
And looked them in the eye and was dismayed.
