Turn Off the Lights

FREE WRITING

    Under the cover of night, her light was hardly recognizable, but she knew she was still being chased.  Farther and farther, she pushed herself, like a train. She could make it, she would get back to him. She knew he was not dead.  He was alive, like the books, like her Uncle, not yet spoiled by the people’s thoughts.

On this stage, I used to see
All the possibilities

Verse
I used to get by just fine by myself
I used to pride myself on not needing help
I never needed a shoulder to cry on
To lean on
To grieve on
I used to get by just fine on my own
I used to pride myself on not needing home
I never needed someone to talk to 
To walk to
I blocked you
