Affliction

Specks of sunlight float in the air
A promise of spring
Sparkled through the morning
Filling it with a lilac scent of hope
And new beginnings.
The fragile beauty of the world,
Take a deep breath, maybe two,
A little cough, maybe too much.
Creeping shadows swirl around
The horizon of your eye
Bleed their curly cobweb tails into your vision
Before they disperse into black snow
Speckled curtain blurs the world into a nauseous anxiety
When you realize it happened again

About Patricia Anabel

I was born in Slovakia at the foot of Carpathian mountains, and so the vampire tradition is in my blood. When I was a little girl, my great-grandmother would read to me dark and twisted folk-tales before bed, and they have left an imprint in my mind. I would often imagine myself in a middle of the story, and I tried to think of other possible outcomes. Those old folk-tales, full of twists and grim events, provide an inspiration to this day.
