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
Fades into thin air…….
