Favorite Quote:
"Everything's alright in the end. If it isn't, it's not the end."

Blank walls confine me, rake my head with throbs,
In worlds of disinfected ceilings, lights
That shine, too bright, as I choke back sobs
And face the wires stripping me of rights.

They laughed at first, my friends, and played along,
But they got scared, and I was left to rot,
To doctors, just another kid gone wrong,
Betrayed by visions, wishing she forgot.

Yet I remember one scene, know it’s real,
That’s lined with raking teeth and dagger claws.
A boy, face down, alone, and gripping steel,
Behind him burning skies that bled cuts raw.

They won’t believe a girl and what she’s seen,
Because I’m right—it’s more than just a dream.
