The Decision: Poetry

The World cracked open all around Her,
destroying an abyss 
She sensed but could not feel:

The silence, the sense, the tension,
the drums and the amazing feeling
of sinking beneath the surface
of that girl who might have been;
Leftover dreams caught in her fists,
the laughter of children
and the void of heartache long gone

She glimpsed for once
a new life of possibility
where no one haunted her anymore
with lies and sorrows and horrors

Closing her eyes,
She took a deep breath
and decided to Live.
