New Women’s Chiffon Tops. They’re just so chiffon-y.

Mapping a Life

yearning for the light
as darkness descends
grabbing the edge of nothing
with a long drop dawning

clawing old wounds
       feel
deep vein blood flowing

listening to voices
       banshees
of ghosts long gone

stoically holding on
for fear of letting go

considering the chasm
between alone and lonely

slowly sinking deeper
into invisibility

tatters
fluttering
in the wind

wolves
howling
in the night

willow-the-wisps
glowing treacherously
beckoning ever

       deeper

one more inch
and then
another

       till

one more
breath
is just one
too much
