Untouched


She lived inner city
In her own terrace flat
A short broken path 
To a blue painted door
Her room was faintly scented
On a nail a rabbit's paw
And there upon the shelf
A hat she never wore

The nails on her toes were painted silver
All but one
She had a tattoo on her hip
Tiny red sun
A pair of rose coloured glasses
Heart shaped, hidden in a drawer
And there upon the shelf
A hat she never wore

She had a scar
There on her knee
A strange stupid silly little story
But she never told me
A silent dancer in a box
Caveat emptor
And there upon the shelf
A hat she never wore

She wore a diamond in her hair
I knew that was fake
That's how she lived
So much to give
Too much to take
Now paint peels from that door
And I don't see her anymore
But I will never forget
The hat she never wore
