Peripheral Vision

by Angel M.

Alone she waits
An impostor
Catching glimpses into
Other peoples lives
She surrounds herself with
Captured in a youthful body
She no longer possesses
Forever on the outside
Looking in
One step out of time
Not quite in focus
Reaching backward
Hanging on
And wishing somehow
To forge a connection
An alchemy of thought
Recognized and unrelenting
Chasing away the darkness
And leaving her clean and bleeding
