there’s a stumble
an unintentioned slip
paranoia has her
in its gleeful grip

the joyous smile
has been wiped from her face
now she struggles to get free
of a mean & murky place

what happened?
why this fall,
her good intentions gone astray?
gone is the delight
she’d hoped to bring to someone’s day
