--

Unclenching her palm
there sat
a tiny speck of light

it rose to hover
above her head
found a spot
above her bed

diaphanous
multifarious
ethereal
she rose

and it struck
her so hard
it made a hole
through her heart

the vacuum
surrounded her
enveloped her
dragged her

outside herself
outside the world
there she stood
and quietly swirled

surrounded by tiny lights
leaving behind one of her own
away from all fights
she was just breathing bones
