Shattered

As the car careened down the highway
She waited in the shadows

At just the right moment,
She stepped out and
Into its path
Shattering into a thousand pieces.

Sparkling diamond shards
Skittered down the road
Flashing rainbows in the headlights
While the dark dust of her demons
Lifted and spun
To the heavens above.
The black tar of her buried memories
Seeped slowly into the concrete
Oozing into the pavement
Searching for an audience
But finding none.
