Transition [repost]

doorway sunset

Neither here nor there,
She waits
To regenerate,
Like a starfish
Missing a limb,
Only this is her heart.
She stays in the doorway,
Between the light too bright
And the darkness
So frightening.
In transition,
Away from the known,
Toward the unknown,
She floats,
Hollow, vague,
With nothing to follow,
Nowhere to go.
