Sunlight trickles in,
prying her eyelids open.
"It's morning, Lilly."

"Wake up, you worthless child,"
cries the sun.

"Wake up, Sweetie,"
her mother utters softly.
"Wake up and see
how beautiful the world is."
Once upon a time, perhaps,
but not anymore.

Once upon a time,
a lot of things.
Like once upon a time,
she had a warm bed,
and her mother
came in every morning
to tell her
it was time,
time to open up
her lovely chocolate eyes
and show the world
her brightest smile.
"Look, Lilly,"
she would say
as she pulled the curtains
gently aside.
"Look at the sun;
isn't she gorgeous?"
"Yes, Mommy,"
she'd whisper, grinning,
"gorgeous."

"It's morning, Lilly. And every morning, the world is yours. Never forget that."
"I promise, Mommy. I promise."

Once upon a time, perhaps,
but not anymore.

Once upon a Tuesday,
when the sun was highest in the sky,
her mother came home,
and fell
in the doorway,
coughing.
"Don't worry,
Sweetie,
Mommy's just sick."
"Mommy,
you said
we don't get sick
in the summer
because the sun is always there
to warm us."
"Don't worry,
just a little sick."
She wiped her lips
and buried her hands
in her gloves
to hide the crimson stains
on her fingers.

"Mommy?"
"Don't worry."

"It's morning, Lilly. And every morning, the world is yours. Never forget that."
"I promise, Mommy. I promise."

Once upon a Wednesday,
the doctor came
and said everything
would be all right.
"Just a little cold,
not to worry."
Once upon a Thursday,
he told her to make her mother comfortable.
"Everything will be okay,
everything will be okay."

Once upon a Friday
her mother closed her eyes,
to take a short rest
and never
opened them
again,

and on Saturday morning
there was no one,

no one to pay the rent.

A warm bed,
a cozy house,
happiness, so far away now.
A loving mother,
and her gentle words,
once upon a time,
but so far away now.

Fall came,
and the sun's reign
came to an end.
On a cold
winter night,
she wrapped her scarf
around her neck
and tried to hang herself.

But she couldn't forget.

"The world is yours, Lilly."

In the alleyway,
warmed only by a scarf
and starving,
she wondered why her mother
had told her so many lies.

The sun rose to taunt her,
but there was no one,

no one to tell her that it was morning.
At the end of the day you're another day colder
And the shirt on your back doesn't keep out the chill
And the righteous hurry past
They don't hear the little ones crying
And the winter is coming on fast, ready to kill
One day nearer to dying!

Les Miserable

It was a little dark, but I really like the imagery and the transitions from light to dark in it! :D
