The Day She Woke Up


“The Day She Woke Up”

With every day
her heart was beating slower
and her lips were less red

The clock ticked seconds
louder than before
as she felt older than ever

Every second was a step
closer to the end
to a new beginning

Every blink captured
a memory full of bruises
and a heart full of hope

The day she woke up
she let go of her safe harbor
and headed home…
