Dark Shadows
Kiana, Age 13, Queens, NY

She is breathing hard
As I walk in her
Dark shadows

Her heart beats
faster and faster
as we take each step

She is breathing much harder
She is tumbling and tripping
as we walk through
the blood rose garden

She is mumbling
under her breath

She is getting dumber
as she continues to take it
To take the pain
To deal with her fear
It is like a drug
She is not addicted
but she cannot
control it
Trying to
hold back
the tears of the dark shadow
