Alone

She sat alone

The lake rippled

As winds blew

Sending shivers

Down her back

 

Her mind refused

To sit still

As tormented thoughts

Threatened to consume

Her last hiding place

 

Her heart was breaking

Bandages not holding

She can’t find

Anything worth

Fighting for anymore

 

Her body so numb

That pain was all

She felt now

The silver blade

Her constant friend

 

The edge came closer

Day by day

As sadness killed

Her last ray

Of life-giving faith

 

She withdrew

From all she knew

And refused to admit

She was not okay
