missing

credit: Alena Aenami
when was the last time
i felt whole?
i think back and wonder
if i ever was.

during the day,
i can cover up
my missing pieces
like a wounded animal.

but at night,
the emptiness is darker
than any shadow
in the corners of my room.

as a wounded animal
fights for survival,
i wonder if
i'll make it til tomorrow.
