Philocaly. A Second Response 2008. She Walks Alone

Written almost a decade ago amazing how it resonates today with a close friend

She Walks Alone

She Walks Alone
She walks alone in the rain
trying hard to forget the pain,
she knows the tears are coming.

She glares hatefully at her wrists
her handy work in full display, much to her dismay
the scars and memories will never go away.

The tears come like a waterfall
there's no one to call
no one cares she's alone out here.

But she has no fear
there's nothing they can do to her that hasn't already been done
she blinks and all of a sudden sees the sun
the end of her hard and lonely road
