Dry eyed she lay 1st draft

DRy eyed she lay - 1st draft

Dry eyed she lay, in her lonely bed
Tears of heartache left unshed
Shadows of fear keep sleep at bay
Since welfare came and took her away
To a place of safety, they said.

Away from that other life she'd led
To live as a prisoner here, instead
Inside these walls, day after day
Dry eyed she lay.

Between these thoughts others sped
Of a different place, a different bed
A place of love where she could play
And where she could forever stay
With this sweet dream inside her head
Dry eyed she lay.

This is a very rough first draft of the first three stanzas. I'm really struggling with this one.
