I live within the concrete walls

each of a thousand eyes I see them all

lost and vacant

staring straight ahead

as fire trucks go blaring by

I was not afraid as she asked

but terrified when she smiled

and the lights fled

from the room

I will not come out

I said

the wall is not my family

not my friend

but it is quiet and safe

tight and snug

it guards what I cannot see

she would ask

I suspect

if it was ok

to be there

I have to say I don’t really know

as fire trucks go blaring by

I never thought to ask

I do not know

I said

and the smile left her face

fading to black

and I was scared when she laughed
