Hollow

img_1374

in the daylight it is camouflaged,
so well masked it is almost an illusion,
a disconsolate hologram diffracting light,
mirroring smiles, avoiding eyes

but at night, it strikes,
an unrelenting ghost attaching itself,
impossible to shake as it closes its wicked hand over hers in predatory ownership,
whispering a solitary word in her ear:
mine

and it eats her alive,
so that she is no skin,
only sharp, brittle little bones,
so hollow the wind makes a song of them

  1. it was so wonderful to read your words Angela, I have missed your writing very much. Guilt and regret can weigh so heavy on the soul. I send you love and lots of peace. I have really missed you.
