Face To Face

Terror gripped her, as she turned the handle,
Her limbs wouldn't move, as she opened the door,
Her heart was beating louder than a gun shot,
Her feet seemed stuck, like they were glued to the floor.

Shadows gripped her, darkness dragged her closer,
The scars on her arms began to ache,
She tried to turn, but her body wouldn't let her,
She cried out in anger, feeling desperate and fake.

She opened her eyes, knowing what was in there,
She placed all her doubts and her sorrows on a shelf,
Holding her breath, she ran into the room,
Face to face with the girl who was herself.
