Leave me alone entirely!
She cried into the black universe,
her self-inflicted universe, these four walls.
Leave me alone again!
Your words are a reminder,
without them I barely think of you at all.
She cried out again.
But she wasn’t speaking of him anymore.
She was speaking at one,
to everyone, to no one at all.
Give her time. She’ll be kind to him.
She’ll return words. And she’ll regret it.
