    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.

    'Fade' Time has gone The day has ended Keep

    moving on Its not yet transcended There is a light At the end of the hall That fights off the night That keeps you from the fall There is a reflection That can never Fade Just one direction That can never break

    '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

    Tragedy. I lost my word can't remind,

    The feelings don't get any melody of a poem in my mind. The way of life is stopped by a sudden storm, So I keep myself in the house like a prisoner as it norm. The sky of mind is heavy as it cloudy, For want of tears I can't cry loudly. The moon walks with me but don't come in...

    She quietly slips into her bathroom,

    locking the door behind her. She likes to pretend it's her secret and no one knows she's there. She sighs as she starts a stream of water in the shower. Closing her eyes, her body gets used to the water that first seemed too hot. Quietly a tear slides down her cheek and...
