Unbearable Answers

Millions of questions

Bombard my mind;

So much so, 

That I cannot think.

But there is one

That cannot wait:

"Carina, where is Amber?"

Immediately, 

Her eyes fill with tears.

She tries to answer

But all that comes out is a whimper.

I prod her.

I have to know if she is okay.

She finally manages to say,

"We were running in the dark.

We-- we lost each other.

I haven't seen her since."

The End
