They pick and tease

They push and pull

They don't realize their words cut deep

Or do they?

They say horrid things

They torment her

They oush her to the edge

Then over it

The edge was once a distant thoguht

When everyone got along

The edge is now the barrier between life and death

She's flirting with it

The edge is gone again

She's on the wrong side

The girl is lost to the barren lant that people call a mind
