A Part Of Me


Alex Amsterdam

She slipped out of the shadows
And into the light.
A white beam was fixated on her
even though it was night.

The girl stood on the cliff
overlooking the town.
Tears were sliding from her face
but she wore no frown.

I stood laughing far away
no idea what was going on.
And when I finally realized
I wished that I was wrong.

I ran to the girl
fixated in the light.
I found her screaming
his name in the night.

I couldn't get her scream out of my mind.
Why couldn't he be here
like he'd always promised and said.

The girl took a hew steps closer
to the very edge.
She looked like an innocent angel
pirched upon the ledge.

I turned and screamed,"NO!"
into the surrounding meadow.
She turned and looked at me,
then slipped from the light back into the shadows.
