ShatteredIs anyone out there?
I ask you to hear my distant pleas,
Silence my screams,
Banish my dreams,
And forgive me.
Someone cradle me,
Child that I am,
Lock my sorrows and fears away,
Turn my nightmares and tears astray,
Don't let them haunt me.
Someone show me,

Destroy me with what is good and right
Before I devour myself.

Stone that I am,
Awaken me from this paralysed state,
Don't let sin be my destined fate,
Let my blood be crimson again.
The child made mistakes, let her be free,
The naïve one will see, hold her again,
The broken heart mends, please let it beat,
The darkness will fade, no

He was lounging backwards in his chair, looking for all the world as though he didn’t have a single care in the world, including the upcoming test. It annoyed me, that I was frantic and ready to scream, while someone else could be that relaxed.
I tested out of the class.
I don’t know if he did.
The second time I saw him, it was a few months after I arrived on campus. He was the one rushing and frantic this time, running across the square. He was probably late for class, though I had no way of knowing for sure. I was already lost in my own thoughts and ideas, deciding on my major and convincing people that yes, this is what I really want to do with my life. If they weren
