Burning - Poem by Katie Huntress

Candle burning in the dark,
Some ones watching from the dark,
I slash my wrist and
Hope to die,
I sit in a corner and
Cry till I can’t cry,
Will some one come help me?
Candle burning in the dark,
Some ones watching from the dark.

    someone is always watching from the dark.. it's either ourself screaming for help or that special one that waits for the right tme before he comes for the rescue..
