Components of Life

April 8, 2008
By Alyson Miller, Kernersville, NC

My mind is a cave-
On a mountain, secluded from life

Dark, cold,
alone,
are the recesses of my brain.
This is what I deserve.

My body is an island-
A pariah, rejected by the ocean

Stranded at sea.
Everyone is happier this way.

My heart is a disease-
It eats away at those I attempt to love,

Blackening my life.
This is how it is meant to be.

The rain is my teardrops-
Streaming silently down my expressionless face,
Washing away my pain.

This is just my average day.
