Image This

written by: Cindy Medina



quietly fading spirit of long-revered image

pitiful phantom of dear hopes abandoned

mournful ghost bound to stolen dreams

Who is this tragic figure of loss and
abandonment, the visiting presence
wonders –

Who senses the presence while neither
speaking nor moving; without fear, only
hopeless –

Who lies inert and scarcely breathing,
dull of eye, bits of livid flesh revealed;
awake –

This feminine figure lying in the shadows,
loosely wrapped in clean white linen,
haunting –

Yes, muses the presence sadly. All these.
