are we in this together or

is the experience my own?

she thought to ask, but didn’t

aware that the answer would arrive


all by itself, as answers do

when the mind goes

quiet, and so

far away


life is beautiful,

he wanted her to know

before he broke into her skull

casting light on heretofore darkness


and her attention fell on

the brilliant shards

the pain was



and she

was free
