My protector came in the night and he brought his friend, Hell
Rains crashed hard upon my face
Heat increased
Leaves died
Hell vanquished my laughter, devoured my presence
Each night dreaded, each night silenced
I tried to free myself of the heavy weight, I tried to open doors
Each door slammed closed, nailed shut, I lost sight
Teeth were visible, nails long and sharp
I became invisible, I did not want to be heard, surviving
Hell grinned as he took my smile
Frozen in space, feet stuck on clouds
On edge with every sound
No longer with a face
