Illusion – L.E.

she wakes up tired

another wasted night

her soul exhausted

fighting demons

in fitful sleep

she’s giving up

the illusion

that it could have been

that it should have been

that it might have been


L.E. is a recently divorced mother of two who basically never finished a damn thing in her life. She writes because she must, it stills the unquenchable thirst of the demons inside of her. She shares it with others so that it may feed theirs. When she’s not battling her demons, she’s out among the living earning one, as a supervisor for a road construction company, informally called paint striping (not to be confused with stripping because that would be weird).
