She burnt away, rotting from within Until all that was left was ceramic skin Perfectly painted with only one crack Just below the knee, a hole of deep black The only blemish on a porcelain doll, Showing inside she was nothing at all But empty and hollow, full of dead space A vacuous vacuum with a manufactured...

NaNoWriMo Eve

White Rose

A single white rose grew in a field of daisies. She knew she was not like the others.
