Poetry on Odyssey: I Don't Belong

An expanse opens to greet her

A wide, gaping emptiness that threatens

To swallow her

Whole


Beams of light

Reflect her every thought

Her every scar

To counteract the expanse


The traverse of the emptiness

Around her

Fills with others

Grey and lifeless


She begins to see

The shades of her mind

Do not, can not

Match those around her


Her mind

Flecked with shards of suffering

Do not, can not

Define her


In the expanse

A light begins to shine

A single light

From within her
