Close by Paul

She idly wonders if black suits her
But no-one cares what you look like now...
Silent screams, swallowed by the sky
Empty, a void.


Just beyond the edge of hearing,
They call
Close, but intangible...beyond the boundary
You know you can't go back.
~
She turns away and faces ahead,
Resolute.
