Her once elegant attire, was stripped off her by fire. Her looks and her charms, could not take up arms.
She’s lost all her beauty, scarred severely.
She used to host, with extravagant gala’s boast. Now only a distant memory, as she is caught up in agony. Her laughter and cheer, is no longer found here.
The house in the woods, has lost all livelihoods. It no longer entertains, only left with migraines. It has lost its appetite, faded out of sight.
