shell

by cathy.robinson

disgraced
i shoved me
into a hollow.
encased
i played upon
fear and lowliness.

walls can't
cover enough
marks and scars,
so this
charade was always
performed at it's best.

pull me
away from all
hopelessness.
cleanse my
troubled mind
and purify my soul.

i don't
want to live
here anymore
this shell
just doesn't
feel like home.
