Gone

She stands before him…

twinkle twinkle little star

how I wonder what you are

Starry explosions of light go

off inside her head

the assault catching

her by surprise.

up above the world so high

like a diamond in the sky

Gazing up into the eyes

of her monsters

she recedes into the earth

a dimming light.

twinkle twinkle little star

how I wonder what you are

 

and she is gone.
