A 365 Daily Challenge: Day 79

Day 79
Topic: disconnection
Topic given by C Infinite

The letter never made it
Carvings from the pencil
Deep rites of desperation
Written by a steady hand
With firm grip
But no control over emotions

It was an apology
After years of disconnection from
Being a human
Years of trying to create an animal
Out of his wife,
An obedient one
The apology was written

But never made it there

Years of living in the pressence of a beast
Had made her wear her skin on the inside,
it was better not to have a face to share her fear with
Disconnection from herself
To stay “safe”

But she never made it

One step was enough
Angel wings already
Water surface was calm
As she dissapeared further down
Into the darkness

Above her head
A piece of paper floated
With carvings from a pencil
Steady hands

The apology floated
Inscribed into the water surface
Above her head

But they never made it there
