There Is This Little Girl
by: Sofie

there is this little gyrl
with a growing emptiness inside
it cannot be heard nor can it be seen
it can only be felt, but then chaos erupts
wild desperation spreads like lightning
infiltrating every thought, every movement
angry voices screaming, demanding attention
nothing remains in tact or untouched
the world is thrown upside down into violent spin
resulting in an ocean without water
a sky without blue and land without earth
like a fire without flames, it devours everything
a fire, ignited by a spark of thought and fueled by hate
a fire, unheard to the ear and unseen to the eye
but the heat is harrowing, torturing to the touch
an ocean without water serves no purpose
in the pursuit of drowning a fire without flames
when there no longer is anything left to destroy
the voices are content and the world stops spinning
this little gyrl is found standing alone and afraid
looking up at the sky and down at the earth
she is unable to trust and unwilling to feel
frightened again of spinning away, out of control
too tired to fight, too exhausted to think
this little gyrl sinks down on her knees
praying to God to be seen and to be heard
because deep down she knows she is dying inside
