A flash of light

Her heart stood still

The defining moment

That changed her life

The voice in the shadows

Haunting her mind

Blurring the lines

Of present and past

The faceless beauty

Of quiet resolve

A master of language

Imprisoned by words

Her history frames her

In an ominous glow

No one will hear her

She's left all alone

Danger is lurking

She feels its cold breath

Through the cracks in the walls

Of what had been her life

One man holds the key

To breaking her fall

But he masks it with pain

Staying just out of reach

The water is rising

On the river between them

Her cries for help

Swallowed by waves

He sits in the silence

Just watching her break

And above all the lies

He now hears her call

Fighting the current

He reaches the shore

The tortured soul

Now safe in his arms
