She feels her chest break. Shatter

as the pit of her stomach stretches, reaches the ground.

”I met this girl today”

She knows
he’s too important, he’s too close -
but without him, who is left?

She is alone.
Each mind feels distant from her own, each touch vacant,


she crumbles into the silence of the night.

She loves
too much. And yet
not enough.
