She was the girl with a broken heart.
She felt torn by everything life had done to her.
She had so much general knowledge, she genuinely wanted to believe she “had this”.
She loved with so much of her heart, she was unsure how she had a beat left.
She loved them as they came, douche bags, runaways, these were her people.
She wanted to be accepted. She longed to be given the grace she extended.
Just once she wanted no one to judge her on the way she said a certain word, or how she dressed.
She felt herself start to fade. To become someone she didn’t recognize.
She fought to keep the waves from pulling her under, fought to stay alive.
When she made the call it was simply to save her life. Yet there was no answer at the other end of the phone.
