Mindless games and tearing eyes

Foggy memories fill her head

New thoughts penetrate her skull like a drill

Straining trying to remember

Crashing hard to the ground

Fields of dead roses engulfed her

Drowned by murky waters

Choking on toxic air

Changing and changing 

Faster and faster                         

Her head spins like a top

Colors, lights, words like a carnival ride

Her hair falls softly over her head

Sprawled across the sharp sand     

Piercing her soft flesh

Waves crash over her and everything fades to black

I feel that this piece speeks to people who have been knocked down. Being bullied can mean a lot to someone and can effect the way they look at others and themselves. I feel that its importaint for adolecents to see this so they know the effect others have on people.
