Close Up of a Stranger getting Stranger
Isabelle5

She has fallen into disrepair,
 1
a dark energy pervaded
 2
by a hopelessness that
 3
is shredding her
 4
inside and out.
 5
 
 
Threats of suicide are tiresome;
 6
I have long since ceased to
 7
care if she lives or dies.
 8
 
 
I am no doctor, no astral physician
 9
who can mend her auras,
 10
change the horror of her past lives
 11
or even slap her back into
 12
the reality of now.
 13
 
 
I try to care, I used to care -
 14
now I only wish she would buy
 15
a ticket to the worm-hole she dreams of
 16
 
 
and be gone.
