{Separate}

The question of sociopathy   † † †  
hung like heavy doors, † † † † † †  
weathered and misshapen, hinges † † † † † †
slightly buckled. † † † † † †  
Crippled compassion chose to † † † † † †  
hide itself in a dark † † † † † †  
cloak shrugged from the † † † † † †  
shoulders of a diseased mind. † † † † † †  
One lie thrust upon another † † † † † †
raped what was left- she † † † † † †  
crawled through her window † † † † † †  
of separate self. † † † † † †  
† † † † † †  
The total of empathy was † † † † † †  
a curious quotient;† † † † † †  
she could not find † † † † † †  
reason to deny it. † † † † † †  
Light spiraled into †† † † † † †
gaps, illuminating old truths † † † † † †  
so rare, they settled languidly † † † † † †  
against her bony cage. † † † † † †  
In time, she opened † † † † † †
her eyes to clearly † † † † † †  
see how her light radiated.† † † † † †  
There, in quiet reverie † † † † † †
she found herself.
