Nothing.

I’m a bit behind on this one since it’s from a few weeks ago, but the picture was one I couldn’t pass up on. So better late than never I suppose.

mirror a void tore through her pale flesh to the gushing crimson beneath

she lay there motionless

a ghostly transparent reflection lost among heavily layered rubble and ivory sheets

twisted evil frames taunted

flashing in a continuous reel

each blow hurt less as her light dimmed

struggling to keep even the faintest glow

all familiarity disintegrated in a few brief moments

an inescapable nightmare she could neither hide from nor wash away

time dissolved

leaving only empty black and mocking light

a numbly blank stare mirrored in her empty chest

heart lost

soul broken

she felt nothing.
