Changing Self

A long thin shadow stretches before me.

I step forward.

The shadow contorts.

Another step.

Another metamorphosis.

It is shapeless now,

I can’t recognize my reflection anymore.

I’m no longer me.

For Trifextra: A 33 word piece inspired by the photo above.  Mine is 31 words long.  Oh well.  Thanks for stopping by.

    I love this Sandra! The words you use to take us through the transformation (contort, metamorphosis, shapeless) are just perfect.

    We change every day, even if not in a physically noticeable way.

  7. “I am no longer me.” Tears your heart out.

    And all it took was a few steps to get so lost.
