a tomorrow was not what she wanted…

the dawn came merciless,
telling her she was still
very much alive.
too distraught to even speak
she opened her eyes
to the effervescent colors
of the new morning
that seem to mock her existence
in its every hue.

in her anguish at having
made it through the night,
she wallowed in her despair,
embracing her pain so hard
it pierced her heart and sank
deep into the recesses
of her tired soul.

she told herself
there is still time
to end it all,
she still has many chances.
but, she abhors the idea
of having to live another day,
pretending she is okay.
