Reach Me

"I want to reach you.

No matter what you do

I will not leave, Eci."

She heaved

A huge sigh,

Looking more human

Than she claimed.

"There is a way.

But it is painful.

Risky.

I will not have you

Go down that path."

A tear slid down

Her cheek. It fell to

Her lips and she winced.

"We're foolish.

We're both just seventeen.

I was stupid to kill myself.

I won't have you doing it

For a broken soul

You will only love

For minutes more."

She looked up into my

Eyes. I knew she would

Not oblige.

The End
