Beyond Distant

The look in her eyes is far away

It is a look beyond distant.

She is lost in her own prison –

Her body shutting down

And her mind turning against her.

She sees a stranger in the mirror

And can’t remember family and friends

Habits she had for years

Are impossible tasks to complete.

She can’t be alone;

She needs supervision

For her own safety.

One night she slips away

To walk in the cold;

Looking for something

Or maybe someone

Only to find that

her blood cools,

her heart slows

…and she is finally free.
