I curl up into a tight ball and lay weeping on the cold, naked floor.
No one’s listening to the wails of a dying heart or the tears of an ebbing soul.

I wipe my tears and peer outside the window.

She wakes up from her sleep and prepares for another victorious day.
Gliding gracefully across the room, she comes to look down upon me.
