Gone

Then the shivers in
her spine became
more than just metaphors (of fear and other things)–
Her fears turned into sickness,
her gums bled profusely, her hair fell off,
and the gods stopped listening.

Today, she was here–
afraid and excited,
and tomorrow, she’ll be gone
like she never was;
like the calm after a storm.

Gone to a place where fear
does not exist,
and I almost envy her.
