An intricate composition
of pain and stammered lyrics
intertwined and embedded.
There is a gaping cavity in her chest
in which only wind and air passes through
from time to time.
In between those moments she is suffocating
struggling for the next breath
in a steady search for her lifeline.

gets taken for granted.
Some enjoy gawking,
some let their eyes resist.

but still, she craves that attention more often than she should.
the core of her bone
but is unable to quit.
She chooses to focus on the flicker of light ahead in her path.
She craves to wrap her hands around it.
She hopes to keep it in her eternal possession.
