Slow she walks

Malama (Vuto_MSK) challenged me to a Micro-fiction challenge. So I dedicate this to you.

Slow she walks, with her eyes closed, into the darkness. She doesn't need eyes to see, ears to hear or senses to sense, what dangers lie ahead.

Here walks a focused girl, in a straight path, numb to distraction or the people around her. 

Straight she walks, to her path of destiny, drawn to it like a magnet.

She's a fragile juggernaut, but nothing can stop her.

Like a fly attracted to a zapper, drawn to the light.

She skips her fate because she's colour-blind.

So she's drawn to darkness and walks alone in silence.

Slow she walks, as whispers talk, here lies a tale of a sleep-walker
