Her nonchalant gaze
Dropped, emotional veil gone.
Pure terror takes her.

Her past, better forgotten,
She cannot forsake.

Shaken, but not stirred
Like a possom* faced with death
Stillness claims the form

*I think this is actually spelled "opossum", but it seemed weird to say "a opposum". And I don't think the "o" is pronounced, so it wouldn't be "an" . . . yeah.

bitter, deadly cold
an empty waste of white
winter memory.

Bravado shattered
with her anonymity.
Despair in those eyes.

Never seen her so
Shaken up before this day.
Hope she'll be okay.

I admire her
And envy her as well, too.
Makes me want to help.

Too bad Erika
Is only ink and paper.
But she seems so real.

Playing 'hide and seek'
you will always lose if you
play against yourself.

Lurking behind you,
A dark grip you thought was gone.
The past will come back.

Erika, poor girl,
Don't you realize what this means?
What is the answer?

You were fortunate
Though he may seem a bit odd,
Largo's a good friend.

Don't run away, girl.
Don't be afriad, Erika.
It's time to face it.

Strange that the legal
term "insanity defense"
should describe Largo...

Her effortless strength
A mask of cool confidence
Just an illusion
