She hurts.

She aches where the weight has slipped—

Where it hangs from her nineteenth vertebrae,

Unsettling her Balance;

Disrupting her Mindset.

She Sinks.

She stumbles where her words could reveal everything—

Where they drown in her will to fly.

Forgetting her Motives.

Bearing her Equilibrium.

She Knows.

But she does not understand

The answers.
