“When you’re a kid, they tell you it’s all… Grow up, get a job, get married, get a house, have a kid, and that’s it. But the truth is, the world is so much stranger than that. It’s so much darker. And so much madder. And so much better.” ~ Doctor Who

She loved it
The glass
The curve was so beautiful
The reflection so fine

The ladder she climbed
The music she felt
It was magic she knew
And a glass path she built

The flashes they felt
Like a million stars
As she flew to the top
She wanted so much more

The numbers they fit
Her face was the puzzle
With all the pieces
And the box with her picture

But as she flew
Up, up, and away
She stopped flying

And began falling

The piano grew louder
Echoing in front of her
The flashes were lightning
No longer the stars

And down she fell
Back down through the clouds
Hitting each rung
Of the ladder she found

The picture was gone
The pieces were lost
And the glass that she loved
Is laden with frost
