She lost herself

all she heard
was a cacophony
of meaningless thoughts
and emotionless words.
all she felt
was a brutal agony
laced with acrid tears
isolated with haunting fears.
all she saw
were ghosts of her insanity
in broken mirrors
and lakes of terror.

slowly,
she lost herself
along the way.
slowly,
she lost herself
in those rainy days.
slowly,
she lost herself
in an alcoholic haze.
