The Barrier

By Sana Miller, TIWP Student

Smell of sugar and burnt dreams,
do the stars look different over there?
Here I lie, awake at night,
my slice of the nightmare.
Melted candle wax to burn your skin,
decaying smiles plastered on the wall.
Just another thing
filling my emptiness,
that’s how I look at the brick wall.
