I Saw Her

I saw her alone

about to step off the edge

of her life

A life left behind

in search of some

sort of peace

To quiet the storm

raging inside her soul

This was oddly inspired by an NPR story about Andrea Yates. The story kept going through my head until I sort of understood what she was trying to say about what she had done to her children. In her mind, she was saving them from something that she imagined was worse than killing them. As a voyuer of others' lives, I found it interesting to try and get inside her head but kind of scary.
