#aprillove2016 Dear reflection

0001-223001967

There’s a ghost there
A shadow of her former self
Grey of face and of hair
The reflection has faded over time.

substance…substance-less…smoke.

Less true, less real,
The grey transmuting to a level
Of transparency.
Solidity fading to a distinct lack of
Realness, personhood or being.

substance…substance-less…smoke.

Not just a lessening of vitality,
A lack of vibrancy, but robbed of
The innate strength of self
The soul fading, slipping away,
Leaving a ghostly husk,
a insubstational reflection
of who she once was

substance…substance-less…smoke.
