She only wants to
make sense of this mess
so she puts the pieces together
to concoct the illusion of stress
She only wants to
feel safe in her own flesh
so she tugs the strings too hard
to prepare us for death
She only wants to
exist in black and white
so she either shakes with rage
or beams with delight
She only wants someone
who will value her disarray
and smother any stability
that is coming her way.
