This original work and many more, is now available in Girl in the Trees, a new poetry book by Laura Wright.

How can a wound that cuts so deep,
Stop bleeding with a smile?
How can I have forever to keep?
Those dreams only live a little while.
When darkness summons me,
The fear has yet to reveal.
All the terrors won’t set me free,
For fear is all I feel…
