Dark Shadow

Behind closed doors,
she breaks every mirror she sees.
She cannot stand the sight
of the person staring back at her.
Her heart, mind, and soul
is so conflicted and possessed with self-hate
that she’d rather not be herself.
She thinks the world
would be a better place without her
but the world has never met her before.

Peaceful Sleep

The realness
of the green grass
hugging my feet and kissing my toes
takes me back
to my wonderful childhood.

I’m running
barefoot
in green pastures
as far as the eye can see.
Fulfilling
all my goals and dreams
in my sleep
I am at peace and
I am truly happy.
