Toxicity #Poetry

An uncontrollable ache started in her mind

She tried to bandage the wound

Listening to music, reading and trying to write

It should be fixed in a jiffy

But this toxin was undeterred

Seeping around the corners of her mental blockade

Infecting every portion of her being

Consuming every inch of her soul

Painfully leaving her hollow

No antidote to be found

Her will to fight snatched away

She succumbed to the darkness

Gaze #Poetry

A ragged face stared at her

The dull blue eyes glaring at her in judgement

Digging deep into her being

Finally resting the harsh gaze on her soul

Chills involuntarily quaked through her body

Making her body quiver

The wrinkled face mimicked her moments

Causing her heart to beat faster

With a trembling hand, she slowly moved towards the furrowed brow

She gasped in shock when her fingers met this sagging cheek

The surface was unnaturally cold

And confusingly smooth

She slowly ran her fingers down the flat surface and off the edge

She gasped when the reality hit

This wasn’t a stranger

This was her image she was viewing

She let out a wail

Tears began to stream down her face
