This work has reached the exceptional level
Mourning somebody who is long gone.

The familiar hollow

by Alba31

In a city of lullabies wafting through the air,
his breathing woke her up.
Only, no one was there.
He had visited her again, for sure,
creeping in from the keyhole,
the one she can't unlove.

Teary dreams started leaking,
gleaming with whiteness like chandelier droplets.
They fall and condense,
clogging up her veins.

In the moist of silence, he found her,
there, where lullabies hum no more.
The voice within scratches the crust and screams,
with the jarring sound of a cracked kettle.
How, - she whispers, - does one exorcise the past?
