I see her wrapped so tightly in those strong arms
Which I intended to be mine
But he was never mine
He was only a dream I dreamed, and prayed for
Hoping that under the sun, he would see how my skin
So dark, had glowed
Like the universe had kissed me at my birth
And I wore my smile like a crown
Truly meaning it at his sight
And I was on guard as I roamed those halls
Empty and alone
No company kept me fulfilled
And though I cried out for his love and attention
He could not see me
