Lost in Drawing


She was made out of doodles

Billions of colorless swirls

Coiling charcoal lines spiraling

Scribbles of smoke

Sketches of grey

Journals filled with stencil tears

A labyrinth of doodles leaking from paper

Into her life

Silvery wordless illustrations

Ashen compositions

She danced in depiction until she was lost

Forgotten in her drawings

Blinded by pencil markings

and smudges she tried to erase

slowly fading in endless grey swirls
