"she did not know that she was falling apart as her thoughts unraveled 

and twisted themselves into a tangle of confusion like that of a thousand 
spools of unwound thread / desperately she cried out for a savior as she 
was swallowed by the black sea of depression, unable to grasp the hands 
that reached out to her / paranoia played her like a puppet depleting her soul 
of love and trust, leaving only a shell, a hollow void where the stranger that 
I did not recognize and could not love, came to reside / anxiety was the air 
in her lungs and it was the only thing with her as she took her last breath / 
like a bright blue cotton dress washed to an empty gray, she slowly faded 
and disappeared"
