adult black and white darkness face

 Those pounding beats,

Were they the last?

As the hours whiled away,

Her heart wasn’t fast.


Those eyes so blank,

They stare up into space,

Her hands twitched,

She longed to escape.


Her mind was a scribble,

Her thoughts were obscure,

She couldn’t silence her mind,

She couldn’t do it anymore.


She was trapped in herself,

Like a befuddled caged bird,

Could she escape her confines?

Could she finally see the world?
