the dark spiral

nightmare-1699071_960_720
she’s lost her shine of late

not looking good

not feeling great

she’s fallen into darkness
where she’s handcuffed to a soul
who lost the parts that make her real
the parts that make her whole

she’s struggling with her me

not who she once
thought she would be
she’s drowning in depression

where there’s only one reflection
and she can’t bear to look in her direction
