APOCALYPTIC WORLD

The gargoyles outside were not her enemy . . . .

 

From within tightly fitted walls of anxiety

Through a shallow window pane she peered

Daunting the view of an apocalyptic world

Every journey outside a trip through hell

Frightened masked men around every turn

Daily living a minefield of danger . . . .

 

Fear from within her fragile psyche

Imparted slow death to her spirit.
