Dry eyed she lay 2nd draft

Dry eyed she lay - 2nd draft

Dry eyed she lay, in her lonely bed
Tears of heartache left unshed
Shadows of fear keep sleep at bay
Ever since welfare 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 through these thoughts others sped
Of a different place, free of dread 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.

I must admit to using a rhyming dictionary for this challenge - is that cheating?
