It’s a solitary and silenced affair,
for the one with the tired mind and the matted hair.
No one knows the depths she had to go
to unravel the past and make the future just so.
It wasn’t enough to convince the ones in charge,
the heads of the institution and the raven that’s still at large.
He’s always lurking in her shadows and disappearing in their edges,
the shape-shifter and mastermind, the one who brought her to her ledges.
