shadows of nothing

a flash in the dark
and she felt un-beautiful
pale and flaking
out nothing shadows
had those
meant something
she wouldn't be there
she would be long gone
instead she felt un-beautiful
under the gleaming cold stars,
she wished she hadn't sacrificed half
of her former self 
for a self that was now divided, 
being divided, 
the qualities she once possessed, 
such as being whole and wholly in control 
of her own self
time dissolved

fading numbers
                letters embossed
in dirt
