Colleen’s Weekly #Tanka Challenge #106 – Ghost & Hollow #MicroPoetry #Etheree

Colleen’s tanka challenge, as always includes the premise that only synonyms for the prompt words must be used…

This week, the words were;

Ghost & Hollow

Etheree #3 for me, dedicated to #MeToo

Portrait, Grim, Girl, Blue, Dark, Album

Scared
Empty
Needing help
Haunting spirits
Age old memories
Looking over shoulders
Strangers always enemies
Unable to ever let go
No touch can heal the scars left behind
All relationships tainted, forever

Ritu 2018

I thank God I have not been in the situation that many women are opening up about, but here is my tribute to those ladies that have been affected by abuse of some kind or another, and then felt they could never open up about it.
