By Ali Loomis, Napa, CA

The girl closed her eyes
Her emotions so wild
A painter’s canvas
A void of colors

The sky is black
The tears are stained
Cold to the bones
Alone in heart and soul

She forgets to breathe
Her screams are mute
She falls back
Into the dark abyss

Sinking down
Invisible chains
Blinking at the light
Dim below the depths
Of despair
