Someone told her
That they loved her
However, this person was distant

She hadn't much of a response
Certainly not one in kind
As she felt nothing

Nothing beside indifference

She couldn't say
That she loved them, certainly
As she didn't feel that

But she had to say something

She opted to acknowledge
Their existence in her usually
Indifferent fashion

"You exist."

It was two words
No more, no less
And that was all she could say

They were confused
But she stated matter-of-factly
That she was acknowledging them

At the end of the day

She told them that she felt nothing
Nothing towards them
Just the indifference

Explaining that
Her psyche only allowed
That much and nothing else

She wasn't overjoyed
Neither was annoyed with
Having met them again

So she responded with "You exist."
