    The sun shone in her window till she could

    sleep no more. She laid still, her cheek on the pillow where her tears from the night before had dried. She yawned as she rolled and put her feet on the floor. "Today will be a better day", she whispered with a faint smile as she stood and undressed for her shower.

    'Farewell' When I am down In this dark

    abyss Can't be found Won't be missed There is no light There is no sound I will not fight Forever I am bound' There is only pain Voices in my head Driving me insane Wishing I was dead Well I can't breathe My heart stops beating Time for me to leave No more greetings
