She sits outside surrounded by dead silence and memories


Sitting and watching the stillness of the night as she has so many times before


There is always so many thoughts that run through her mind


Her heart gets so heavy, as she stares into the darkness


Those secrets she keeps hidden begin to take over her body


Her life is so different now, but those demons always come back to haunt her


She just can't seem to escape the pain from her past


Something is always lurking underneath the surface


Waiting to crush every ounce of happiness that enters into her life


She often finds herself wishing she could scream out what happened to her


Every horrible nightmare that she can never forget


Then maybe, just maybe she could start the process to heal those wounds


Each year that passes takes another piece of her voice and what little dignity she has left


No matter how much time has gone by she still feels the hurt and sorrow


In this moment of silence she feels compelled to cry and grieve


She lets her sorrow flow into the night


For she knows this sadness will leave as soon as it has come


So with one last goodbye she closes her eyes and prays for peace once again


Then waits for the storm to pass and fade away into the stillness of the night
