The Black Curtains of My Mind
by Whitney J., age 16

Drifting
atop the rolling water
caressing my sides
making ripples against
the Black Curtains of My Mind
Walking
through green and lively trees
ground so springy
their leafs softly brushing
the Black Curtains of My Mind
Standing
on a dry sandy hill
wind through my hair
the grains pushing aside
the Black Curtains of My Mind
Floating
in the dark night fog
city lights below
all the swirling brightness shinning on
the Black Curtains of My Mind
Silence
outside so quiet and calm
yet inside
everything is blocked and hiding behind
the Black Curtains of My Mind
