Emily Beck

LOVED

ADORED—BELOVED—CHERISHED

DREAMS WERE CRUSHED

HOPES WERE SHATTERED

DESIRE WAS GONE

EMOTIONS ARE BARRICADED

A FAÇADE THEY ARE HIDDEN

WALLS THEY WENT UNSEEN

NO TIME TO ACHE

NO HARM TO BE DONE

WOUNDS HEAL—EVENTUALLY

ELATION IS HEARD

JUBILANCE IS SEEN

BRILLIANCE IS FELT

THROUGH THESE CHASMS

REALIZATION

INCOMPLETE AM I

UNFINISHED I AM

DEFICIENT AM I

ALL ONE BEHOLDS IS A GLIMPSE

REVIEWS ARE REPULSIVE TO APPREHEND

CONTENT SHE IS!

WRONG THEY ARE!

EMPTY—DESOLATE—DEVOID—HOLLOW

LONELY
