"Kiss me and you will see how important I am." Sylvia Plath

Cracks in the ceiling
Holes in the floor
Broken remains of feeling
Slams of the door

Lonely and afraid
Nobody to hold
Her emotions she betrayed
Now watch her unfold

Fragments of her mind
Pieces of her soul
The missing parts she wishes to find
To make herself whole

Thoughts seen by the naked eye
Nowhere to hide
No strength to deny
What will she do when her world collides?

Like tacks on a board
Needle to the arm
The electrocuting cord
One by one, disarm

Not time to quit
Not time to give in
To your life commit
This time with thicker skin

Looking ahead
Don’t second guess
Live today instead
No more tears to confess

Behold a new life
Walk forward, move on
Through all the strife
Leave behind the forgone
