Aftermath

a tense look etches the face

she wears it night and day

the mind is broken

she cannot relax

her eyes vigilant

her ears alert

the silent squeeze

feels like a heart attack

the isolation

is very cold

fear drives

all friends home

while she sits

trying to fight back

trying to tap tap tap

without a thought

of hack hack hack

she is living with

the aftermath

of being hacked .

very much like the "tap tap tap" and "hack hack hack" as if it was a childish play but really it is not.

Very Now! I like the way it draws you in not knowing the source of her stress until the conclusion of the aftermath is revealed on the very last line! Bravo
