Image of Fear

brittle bone rattles

baring jagged edges

jutting rudely

beneath

ill fitting flesh and

pudding paunch

obscene and unseemly

unsettling reflection

pallid

in a stained mirror

so familiar yet

foreign

gazing through

sullen eyes

chalky complexion

chill ‘neath warm skin

it scares me

truly

it does

creeps on

nagging
