Written by: Suzette Richards

Streaked with fresh tears shining in the silver light Of the moon reflecting off the windowpane A rendezvous of sounds whisper in the night Dark shadows flit into the overgrown lane Of my mind; echoing the words; taunting me Grappling with the visions to please set me free Crumbled in frustration of inspiration I dance with the shadows in liberation
