Folded, between the pages of books.

 

She's tearing pages from her notebook,

they rain down like dilapidated snow flakes.

She presses keys against a machine,

and watches as the words dance in front of her,

making sounds that of a melody reaching into the ear drums.

This is her instrument,

her passion,

her song.

The letters form in the shape of treble clefs,

and written within the notes,

her life.

Pieces of a story,

to sing,

to read,

to witness with the imagination.

She is a pianist in her own way.

There are no instructions in this book for her to follow,

for it is all scattered anyway,

complicated,

just like the girl she finds herself to be.

Lost,

standing in a world unnoticed.

She walks pass individuals,

and they become shaded ghosts.

She is the sketch upon your canvas.

An outline.

Hair,

ears,

lips,

eyes.

No form really to take,

because she folds in on herself like a paper crane.

Your ink,

she is immersed in it,

and it soaks into her pale skin,

trailing lines that become blurred.

She is missing,

inside this document,

forever trapped behind sheets of white,

because she is the structure in what keeps it alive,

the contour that became a draft,

and created within it...an inspirational design.
