Feeding the Shadows



She simply stated, “I don’t belong.” 

Easing backwards through the doorway’s threshold

Closing as softly as her footsteps 

She stepped into the dark of night


Sucking her breath in violently

Her eyes haunting


Light smothered until a void remained

Stumbling over outstretched hands

Sinking into the shadows

Whispering, “Where I belong.”
