Here In A Place I Don’t Belong – Author Joanna Maharis

Here in a place I don’t belong,

I dig my heels in my grave as

broken truths pollute my heart

with tales of a dying fire that once

lived inside my spirit.

For trapped in the realms of my mind,

I see smoky mirrors being absorbed

by my own reflection

where beasts come out of the shadows

to prey on the meek,

because of their thirst for blood.

They lead me down a trail of tears

where emulsion of my soul illuminates the sky;

yet, this dance of death rampages with their fire

forever entombing me in a thick fog.
