Her heart is feather fragile
Hidden so deep inside
Fractured and hard to handle
Her broken lullaby

Ghostly words echoing through her
A coldness like winter
Any moment may undo her
Lonely and splintered

Clouds heavy with the tears of an angel
That was caught and is hopelessly tangled
In the web of lies that the world has weaved
A fabrication she thought she believed
Her halo slips and it falls to the cold ground
Shatters asunder; not a single sound
Her tears soon follow and they washed away
Any little hope that might have remained

Her heart, so feather fragile
Behind a lock and a matching key
Nobody will ever handle
This heart that belongs to me

The sky goes pale with a lifeless shade of grey
As the sun sets light begins to fade away
In one last final effort, she struggles to break free
Tears now staining her delicate paper wings
Realizing that her fate isn't something she can escape
She cries alone in solitude, unwillingly she waits
Counting stars, wondering if they care
Tracing scars… wishing they weren't there…
"This has to get better, we're fragile like a feather..."

You have a lovely sense of meter and rhyming, which is a refreshing change. I have to say, it was really the last two lines that drew me in. They added a sympathetic tone to the rest of the words.

This feels like a dismal little lullaby, beautiful job :heart:
