She knew it would happen eventually.
She braced herself for the fall
as she spiraled out of control.
If only it were bones that were broken
and not her heart that shattered
when she landed on reality’s dagger.
Death comes swiftly to a dream unsound,
and silence is deafening to a song unsung.
The cloak of deceit weighs heavy on her shoulders
while the light of day destroys her delusion,
rendering the world unbearable once again.
