The Paper Thin Girl

January 29, 2008
By Tricia Tupper, Port Angeles, WA

The paper thin girl that no one can see, cries every night over what she wants to be.

They'll never know how they hurt her inside,
with cruelty she could no longer abide.

Until one day when she picked up a knife,
to sate her pain and end her short life.

Blood filled the bathroom floor,
her little sister opened the door.

Only to discover it was too late,
her sister was fast approaching hell's gate.

And as the light faded from her face,
she thought she was going to a better place.
