Terrified of becoming
an inconvenience, she
will melt into herself
one day, begging to
be heard by those she
never spoke to.

She is drowning in
“I’m fine”, a sinking
that can be seen on
her face when she
is asked about how
that heart of hers is
holding up.

Terrified of being
criticized for anything
at all, she simply
ceased to be. No one
takes notice when the
quiet ones fall deeper
into the silence.
