In a Little Girl's MindThere sits the girl with the things in her eyes
Monsters, destruction, and sweet butterflies
Hopscotch and daisies, surrounded by screams
Beautiful dresses now torn at the seams
Crayons and paintbrushes, villains and grins
Young, gladsome innocence, hatred and sins
Little red houses on roads left to fade
Gorgeous moonlight shining off of the blade
Blood pouring out as she cries her own name
Knowing she's forced to take each bit of blame
She could have stopped it and left it behind
All of these things in her troubled young mind
She could have saved them if she dared to try
Rather, though, she left herself there to die.
Now, others watch as she sits on the ground
Keeping their distance and letting her drown
In her own worries and things she won't tell
Waiting for her mind to kill her as well…

Blood. A lot of it.
No wonder Cody was kind of freaking out about leaving him alone.
Head wounds leave a lot of blood, he reminded himself. It wasn't as bad as it looked. He shut his eyes, willing himself to push any fear to the back of his mind. He was alive. It was okay. It wasn't like he was having any trouble breathing or anything else like that.
A heavy clinking sound drew his attention suddenly.
