No More - Poem by nikki hays

She sits there alone at night
Lonely soul shattered by love
contemplating eternity she cries
Be gone with you evil souls
She cannot scream loud enough
This woman on the edge
Teetering between sanity and illusion
And again the woman cries
Her crystalic rivers ebbing
From the sockets above her cheeks
She would scream out louder
But her breath is gone, shes weak
Emaciated and worn she begs
As she searches for her loss
Scraping up yesterdays sorrows
The stone gathering the moss
The torents of cascading memories
Rip and gush and pull at her lifeless weeds
And again she cries
She cries for the child lost
The loved one up and gone
She cries for the young girl
And what her past brought undone
If there is a darkest corner of her mind
She will crawl into the space it offers
And disolve, dissapear, subside
She lets herself release
She's flying now, an eagle
She soars, closes her eyes
She is part of it now
The infernal noise she worshipped
All the pain is gone
No more
