The Dead Poet

So here's a poem that I wrote initially for this contest but ended up entering a different poem so here this one is instead!

Chapter 1

Poem

Her mind is blank
and her emotions are running wild
enjoying the freedom for the first time in awhile
but that won't last because she is dying

Not physically of course,
but mentally instead
since one too many disappointments
led to an imaginary cardiac arrest
- -
There's just nothing more for the girl to hold onto
especially since she can't even write how she feels
and after all this girl is a writer
so words is all she has.

But when those phrases can't be woven together
she becomes nothing more than this corpse
that's still breathing--still walking--still trying
but not invested to her actions
--
making her mind become nothing more than a casket for all the poems she had written.
