Into the Unknown

Gasping breaths

Filled the room

A body became

Alive once more

 

The body was laying

In a porcelain tub

Red water turned cold

With the time that had gone

 

A pale arm dripped

Onto the floor

The steady stream

That scared her no more

 

She wanted to be free

Of the monster that screamed

Within the blood

That filled her with life

 

The arm trembled slowly

As feeling returned

Bright eyes blinked closely

And tears broke forth

 

Disbelief filled her

At her failed plan

A life not wanted

An attempt for an end

 

Her heart beat faster

As the door started shaking

The banging of hands

The voices now shaking

 

Her body rose slowly

Tired and cold

She opened the door

Into the unknown
