She is always just around the corner.
There are days
when She decides to sit quietly
at the table where I’m sitting
when I’m all alone.
And I feel Her
surround me.
She will not leave.
Invisible to everyone but me
she clutches my heart,
holds my hand,
robs me of my air.
She fills my every breath.
I sigh.
She sighs.
I stand up and walk away.
She follows.
