sorrow clutches onto her heart
and refuses to let go.
it seems as if this terrible feeling
threatening to consume her entirely.
the demons in her head
relentlessly taunt her
and the skeletons in her closet
beg for release.
but she does not falter,
she does not break.
because the facade cannot fade
so she will continue to sink deeper and deeper
because she is drowning,
and there is no one to save her.
