Darkness engulfs her
As she contemplates, teetering on the edge
Of the abyss. Surrender, and she might
Finally be free.
But stay here and fight, eventually losing the battle
Against the overwhelming emptiness that clouds her soul
And the vicious cycle will start all over again.
But it is here, wobbling on the last crumbling pieces of
Solid ground beneath her feet that she finally looks up
And sees for once that she is not alone in this cold, forgotten place.
Curious eyes search her face, wondering
Who is she to them? And who are they to her?
A mother, a brother, a teacher, a friend?
But then the darkness swells again, and they slowly disappear.
Alone again, a great shiver runs through her body
As she closes her eyes, crosses her fingers,
We're starting the poetry unit in my English class and this was an assignment I was supposed to hand in but didn't yet...
You can't control whether or not it rains, but you can control whether or not you bring an umbrella. <3
