“She turned
my heart to ash
arrived to me
on a bright red comet
a chariot to trample
my soul into the sand
leaving glass
for me to walk upon—
and yet
I loved her feeling
because it was a feeling
and it was 
so finally true
it hurt more than
the rest had hurt before
but inside it made me
I was alive for her
and my heart embered.”
