drums of thunder

clash with the silence

leaving cracks as they become louder


a girl

sitting silently

looks up

beams of flying light

break through the cloud filled night sky

that surrounds her


the drums quicken

grow nearer

cracks become holes


the girl

sees new worlds

the icy blue of her eyes begin to thaw

as the holes become larger

reds blues and greens

replace the black that had been suffocating her


the drums quietly disappear

beams of light replaced by a fiery yellow ball

the black that had filled her life is gone


the girl

stands up

knees shaking

threating to buckle

eyes wide

her heart absorbs the many colors


and the chance to start again
