Fragments of “she”

Her eyes glimmered in the darkness
like stars in the sky and when I
reached for her hand the glimmer
started to die out. It was like the stars had
finally fallen and yet still, she looked
so peaceful; in a deep, catastrophic sleep
that she would never be woken from.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When she tried to burrow down
deep enough to understand her own
misfortune and anguish, she found
nothing but pebbles and fallen stars.
