Word of the Day Challenge #54-Untitled Poem

***This poem is a continuation of Sister’s Shade and Bitter Spectre . Again these poems deal with sensitive issues.***
Flesh 
stretched taut over broken skull
eyes sunken
forever looking inward
escaping mirrored glare.
Life went down in a flash
fire burned 
she wanted to forget.
To run away.
Gaunt
sinew and muscle
consumed as fuel.
She huddles
invisible
hidden
hair over face
teeth cracked
decayed
falling out…..
broken
blackened
hurting in her head.
They ground her.
Keep her feeling pain.
Gashes in her arms
festering pus glows
never enough to kill herself
do any lasting harm.
She had luck.
Always found.
Always cradled.
Always…..
brought back from the brink of hell.
She tried.
Put herself in danger.
Ripped open her veins.
Drank to oblivion and beyond.
Took drugs and more.
Every time
she awoke to the same living nightmare.
One she knew well.
The view never changed.
Her eyes flutter open
pain ripping through anew
bending over her
face twisted in anguished wail
eyes blackened with rage
sister soul eater
her revenge…..
