Edge Of A Ledge - Poem by BlacknessRose ...

Lighting streaks across the sky
She wishes she can grow wings and fly
Away from the things that hold her back
Away from her horrible past
Rain pounds onto her head
And she wishes she were dead
He betrayed her and broke her heart
And he took the only part
That meant so much to her
Now she's laying on a rock
Hoping no one will see her
Like the hawk
The rain stops, The clouds clear
The only thing that falls is a tear
Standing up she sheds the pain
It disappears like the rain
The sun shines bright
And she takes flight
Over the edge
Of this ledge
