"Inside Myself"

Season of the Witch Fanfiction

Note: This is for my friends' Anna Songfic Contest.

Loneliness. Sorrow. Longing. Fear. Anna lay inside herself, defeated and broken.

Playground school bell rings again. Rain clouds come to play again. Has no one told you she's not breathing?

She waits for her time to leave; it's all she has left to live for. There is no hope. Her heart bleeds, her tears burn.

Hello. I'm your mind giving you someone to talk to. Hello.

Never before had she felt so alone. With every step she took, witch every scorning glare she saw, she lost a part of herself, until there was nothing left. Her dreams taunted her, reminding her that she was unwanted.

If I smile and don't believe. Soon I know I'll wake from this dream.

Behman. That one word, that one man was a breath of fresh air to Anna. He seemed too good to be true. Day and night, she fantasized about him. But when she awakened from her dreamscape, it dawned on her that it was not meant to be.

Don't try to fix me I'm not broken. Hello. I'm the lie living for you so you can hide. Don't cry.

The anger in Behman's eyes frightened her. She hadn't meant to kill Eckhart or Hagamar; she had not choice. She wanted to disappear like a ghost into the night.

Suddenly I know I'm not sleeping. Hello. I'm still here. All that's left of yesterday.

Once against Anna was left with no hope and no purpose. With a shattered heart, Anna gave herself up. There was no one who would save her after all. Alone. Dead. Hated. Darkness. Anna let her soul be consumed by evil.
