Phantom Pain

drinks in winter rain like cold


coating her tongue with

nimbus swell

spends time staring out windows

not saying a word

day dreaming mad hallucinations

behind calm eyes

image of serenity

screaming incessantly

from the pillow padded

sound proofed cell

of a damaged soul

watch her move and sway




breaching the uncanny valley

warm vibrant

flesh and blood


clotted flow turning black


no longer obstructing

the whole

no longer attached

the phantom pain
