She stands speechless as the colors dribble down the wall

Her feet glued to the cold tiled floor, there’s no escape

Her mouth held shut by a sticky silvery demon

Her heart is stone as it falls into her stomach


The malevolent beasts swoop down and surround her

They cage her with their tarnished wings

As she slowly falls, they cackle in amusement

Her sobriety is used to lash her and make her weep


Then the jumbled walls melt away

The brutal demon rips from her mouth leaving a small faded mark

The glue vanishes as if it were never there

The cruel beasts fly away; they plan their next attack

The sweet refreshing air trickles down her throat, she can breathe again

She stands motionless in her classroom weeping

She is truly alone
