People thought that girl was crazy
Scratching walls with her fingernails
Just a street girl
Watching people all day

Laughing loudly
A sound like a scream
Her pain invisible
Uncomfortable

When she disappeared
We breathed a sigh of relief

Vanishing from our sight
Leaving her dream on the walls
Scratched pictures
Without danger or fear

She drew herself in the middle
For us to see
Happy, smiling
Free as wind
