She Listened

She Listened by Martin Hanley

She listened while others watched
She smiled, and liked, and lost
Receding mirror of another way
Soul sinner; loves run astray.

She listened while others lied
She waited; some others cried
Far above, she still searched below
Her ladder hidden; no one would know.

She listened while others died
She suffered on the other side
Within her cave, a candle lit
Illuminated shadows, now silently sit.

She listened while the world was born
She closed her eyes as her words grew thorns
Yet, in that darkness, it was plain to see
That truth itself, lies beyond the sea.
