Secret vortex


photo Francesca Woodman

at speed the air hissed
forcing my eyes back
a zombie girl
white eyed and fluttering lashes
a monster
wrapped in a false costume
of purity
and lace
will you catch my arm?
bring me to a stop?
chasing the vortex has changed me
your fingertips lay violet bruises
and my knees
roughly scrapped
tell our secret story.

  2. I think bruises can tell too many secret stories...

  3. This is just sadly beautiful:
    "my knees
    roughly scrapped
    tell our secret story."

  8. Beautifully penned ~~ bruises fade externally, internally is a different story.

  10. It is interesting how you stated "our secret story." You made sure you included the possible abuser in the secret becauae it is not only the victim's own.
