Before you read this poem you should know what Capgras Syndrome really is. Capgras Syndrome is a disorder in which a person holds a delusion that a friend, spouse, parent, or other close family member has been replaced by an identical-looking imposter.
I feel the pain in my head, As rage grips my mind like a claw. I now see with clarity the Woman in Black, Radiant as the sun and without flaw.
Her ashen face cloaked by an exquisite veil, Like the sun eclipses the moon. As she beckons me closer with half a smile, A step forward and I’m ready to swoon.
Her beautiful face turns murky with every step, As my head throbs with a need for release. Is it folly to continue on this treacherous path, Or is it destiny calling in all its wrath.
I choose to move onward, pain now gripping my heart, While the epitome of beauty casts down her impenetrable veil. To reveal not a face of serenity, But one ravaged to all extremity.
I try to run but the agony is far too great, Falling to the ground, flashes of white seize my mind. Peace engulfs me in its arms as I take my final breath, Looking at the Woman in Black who was nothing but death.
