Do you know her?

She walks to school with bruises and scars on her mind

Years of verbal abuses tattoo her skin

But that's only where the damage begins

If you really want to see what's in her mind

You need to set the brain to rewind

Back to when doors were barricades

And music was her best friend

The door delays the smoke from creeping in and choke her

The barricade kept out the red eye monster who wanted to beat her.

After the fits of coughing and crying comes and goes

Simone lullabies her to sleep with stories of weeping willows

With police singing of magic and fields of gold

She wishes that this nightmare was a trick, a mistake

You can feel her fear, her desperate wish to disappear

As her yells of

STOP!!

Fades into thin air…….
