She realized it had been eating her,
Swallowing her whole,
Hollowing her out from the inside.
And when it finally spewed out,
In a burst of frustration,
As scared as it made her feel,
She found peace, for a while,
that descended on her mind, body and soul.
It was short-lived – but in those moments she felt..
pure and complete calmness,
Like a burden had been lifted,
Like she were floating on air,
– something that she never thought was possible – had just happened.
She’s still empty, but a hopeful hollow.
