Peering through cracks in the closest window

And crowding this space I'm so far below.

Favored her reflection for looking so strange:

She followed but never fell back to my age.

Everything's awkward. Why are you here?

Watch me flip the pages of adolescent fear.

Unlike me you borrow, but never break.

If I steal your heart, will you let me wake?

Please, take my presence, my heartbeat, my friend.

Please allow me to make this the end.
