Her auburn hair,

Her sparkling eyes,

Her light steps,

Her haunting melody,

Shattering me inside,

Into a thousand fragments.

She creeps through the corridors,

Passing by me,

Arousing the extremes of my emotions,

Casting her shadows over me,

Oh, how mesmerising and enchanting,

Her haunting melody,

With that intricate humming,

She passes by me,

Leaving me abandoned,

Shattering me inside,

Into a thousand fragments.
