My Superhero

The day I saw my superhero first cry
Was the day that she deployed
That wall she had built ten feet high
Cracked until it was destroyed
And when she came back with fear
She killed her sorrows drink after drink
It was like she wasn't here
It was like she didn't think
Her inner demons ate away
Memories of that desert sun
The pain got worse day by day
The demons had finally won
She became loud and wild
Yet so afraid and alone
Now she was the child
But this time, I had grown
As hard as we all have tried
It is now her own battles she must fight
The villains are trapped inside
My superhero has found her kryptonite
