Echoes (2015)

Sanitarium Magazine is a horror literary magazine that collects terrifying works from around the world. My poem, Echoes, was published in Issue #35. 

In this work, a spirit reflects on her daily life as a man moves into the home that she inhabits. The imagery and language is built on many different emotions and concepts (depression, love, fear, resentment) that create horrific imagery and description. One of the goals was also to use the form of the poem to convey the character's perspectives and feelings. 

This piece was developed in a creative workshop through several drafts and revisions. It was also my first ever piece of published literature.
