ghosts form from its layers
and she cannot escape.
It is cold. The fog
penetrates into her soul.
She is trapped, alone, longing for a breeze
but thoughts twirl like the fog around the trees.
This is not the first time
she's in the world yet far away
acting her role so well.
But suddenly the sky appears,
a weak sun breaks through.
She knows that once again the fog will fall
and yet for now...almost forgets it all.
