Narcissus

 

You are empty void of light

hunger for  this life gnaws at your insides

picking you clean leaving you starving.

 

The mirror reflects an easy smile

painted permanently side to side

rosy red your eyes as dark as night

 

& there’s nothing to hold onto

no healing hand to lead

as you search the outside for an inside clue

 

to nothing.

 

The trees turn gold and weep for summers hope

& you are spinning, no control dizzy from

the burnt out cinders of a love that left.

 

You are empty like a broken doll

waiting for a sound to hold you up

waiting for it all to be

 

something.
