Bates Motel/Vacancy

His emotional state so vacant,
He hasn't noticed that she's been gone for weeks,
More and more time in her creative space.

But he hasn't been the focus,
Her thoughts and feelings elsewhere,
He has no capacity to read them,
As if in a foreign language,
he missed in high school.

Not sensing her vulnerability,
how easily she could fall for a touch, a word,
and lose herself in a careless moment.

Overcome, tumbling,
till she reaches a place rich in emotions, intimacy,
how cruel to tempt herself with such images.
Her reality so disparate.
Dizzy for a brief respite,
from the airless, blank walls that enclose her.
