Betsy Billingsley

The night skies glitter overhead
As paws of pain grope at me
My heart takes flight into the shining sky
My soul whispers away on tiny steps of despair

I lie there
in mounds of pain and shame
The cool dirt touches my back
the crickets sing a lovely song

I am alone
alone in a world of numbness
little girl
quit crying

deep,deep soul-sucking breaths
gulp the night air
and pick yourself up

the world around me has changed
the light behind my eyes is dead
I am woman hear me roar
