"We know what we are, but not what we may be" - Shakespeare

girl wakes up in a room
the walls crumble into pieces of deformed rock
as sirens of yells echo throughout.
girl wakes up eating her way out of
fear and shame. out of loss and grief.
girl wakes up in a back alley with a boy
his lips on hers, his calloused hands
trace the outline of her dirty figure.
he walks away, numb tear drops
trickle down her cheeks
girl wakes up with ragged teeth
coated with satin acid.
girl wakes up with hand drawn faces
none of them she started out with.
girl wakes up to a death bed
covered by the roaring unknown
doesn't know if its hers
but her body sinks into the bloodless covers.
girl wakes up with a handful of pills
girl wakes up in a hospital bed
a familiar scene.  Bare beneath the gown,
covered in vomit. IVs in arms
watching medicine enter her bloodstream.
girl wakes up to nurses discussing her as a number.
girl wakes up into a nightmare
realizes its reality.
girl wakes up in a weekly therapy session.
doesn't know of anything else. 
girl wakes up to rain knocking on her window
but for all she knows it could be
teeth or glass breaking.
Girl wakes up in a puddle of tears
and antidepressants
wishes this would be it.
girl wakes up as a prisoner to her own darkness.
