A long night

On lonely streets she walks at night
Looking to turn a trick
She knows too well the pain of night
She hopes it passes quick

She uses drugs to numb the pain
that comes with fading light
And on the streets she roams again
As strangers she invites

On lonely streets she walks no more
She'd overdosed the night before
No tears were shed for her sad plight
Just the pain of eternal night

    Dear Joseph, She will have to stop using drugs if she hopes to turn her life around. There are many women such as the one you describe here and I pray they get a second chance. Your poem is very touching and vividly creates the portrait of the street walker. Well done! Love, Carolyn
