She wanted to lock herself away
and question her world view,
she wanted to cry out the pain
and scream at the world too.
Like her tears the rain had come
coming from all around,
here she was, suffering,
and no one hears a sound.
She began to line herself with marks,
like her pain that would stay awhile.
All her joy had slipped away
with nothing left to make her smile.
She stashed away her healer
to save for another rainy day,
the clouds began to move again
and slowly faded away.
