She hoped that she would be able to count to a hundred one day. Then, she might be able to understand the enormity of it all and realise that a hundred may have been a million in another universe or nothing at all in a different world.

With every breath, she knew that time was running out. She knew that the staircase that she had been looking for would disappear. She knew that the place that she could only dream of was slowly fading away. So she breathed, and breathed, and wished for time to stop so she could finally see the sunlight. Inhale, exhale.

But no help ever came. She had to find it herself by jumping from rock to rock over rivers and running up sloping hills. And then, at the top, she’d be able to see everything and begin to understand how the world was made to nurture her, not destroy her,

The affairs were what stopped her from saying good bye. She’d seen what had happened, and she wanted to be there to stop it, stop it before there were more broken hearts than just her own.

Before was a whole different time for her. Before was when she could believe in his smile and before was when she had the heart to return that smile back. After was now and now was a time where smiles were hardly exchanged.

She didn’t want to be afraid. But there was something about the world that put her off, something about how when she focused on one moment, she realised how small she was. The universe was bigger than her and would always be.

There were too many people around her for her to understand. The people were what delayed her and the people were what made her going. And when she stopped amongst the people, she felt so alone.

The trials that faced her were what stopped her from continuing. They were what stopped her from tearing apart the girl they wanted her to be to the girl she really was. Instead, she walked away with the skin of another person wrapped around herself.

She couldn’t even begin to tell them what had happened. She knew that it would be better if she told them all of the story but she couldn’t bear to part with the event that had made her who she was. She couldn’t bear to let go of the one thing that seemed stable in her life, a memory of a time where the birds tweeted and the sun shone and a day could last forever.

Together. Together, the stars swirled together into an endless space which was dominated by their light. The planets joined hands and the moons stopped orbiting. The stars shone on, blinking in the darkness as the universe broke apart.

She was breathing; little wisps of cloud travelled up from her lips in the cold early morning air. Her eyelids fluttered open to see that no one was with her. But she was alive and that was all that mattered. And, for a while, she could lie there, knowing that it wasn’t yet time to give up.

The blindness was what made her let the world in. The blindness was what made her finally forget all that she’d seen and accept what was happening now. But unfortunately, the blindness was what also made her turn into someone else.

He fried that piece of her heart over and over again, until it was only ash and dust. And then she scattered those remains over the world so that she could love more deeply and widely than she ever had before.

The asthma was what kept her going. She was out of breath but she wanted to go further, push herself, make it to the next line. Even if she collapsed straight after making it to the finish, a part of her would be happy that she beat the thing that had been dragging her down all her life.

She was dysfunctional, different, not normal. They thought of her as anything but human and did their best to avoid her, But maybe, in another universe, she was normal and they were the messed up ones.

The binding that held us together was breaking; I knew that. I could feel the fibres falling apart as your eyes became more unfamiliar, and I could feel myself reaching out a hand. But unlike me, you wanted this to happen. You let it break and you let my hand touch nothing but air. And then you left me, alone, with only a broken cord as my friend.

She could lie forever in a spa, her skin warm and her breath light in the hot air. She could lie forever there, her skin getting wrinkled as the air faded away. She could lie forever, and only wake up until the water was over her head.

Maybe if you flex my bonds enough you’ll understand why they can’t hold together, and why they can never hold together. Maybe then you’ll understand who I am and, in turn, realise who you are not. Because you are the girl who is strong and I am the girl who is anything but that.

The stillness of night time made her wrap herself deeper into the ever-growing hole inside of her. There, it was safe and warm, but it was also where monsters hid in not dark corners, but in corners exposed to light.

It was a miracle that she was back. It was a miracle that she could hear my calls above the beating of her heart and the thoughts racing in her mind. It was a miracle that she was alive, and it was a miracle that I was the one who saved her.

She covered herself with things she was not. She put layer upon layer on herself in the hopes of destroying the girl that she hated. But that girl was who she truly was. So while she flashed that fake smile, the layers started to chip away.

The texture of her heart was barren; nothing light had landed on it for years. There were scars, holes, and graves of the things that she once loved. Because the things she loved always seemed to betray her in the end. And the scars showed.

She was dehydrated; all the life had been sucked out of her. The memories that once made her heart float with happiness were replaced by a dull and heavy ache. And the girl who used to laugh and smile became the girl who could only watch with watery eyes.

He was her salvation. I watched him as she wiped the tears from her eyes and as he held her close. I was always there in the shadows, watching, wishing I was her. Because the scars, they never seemed to stop hurting.

There was a misty gloom around her that she didn’t let anyone look through. Even if you tried to sneak a peek, she’d be quick to notice and would clutch that haze away from you with burning eyes. The only time I got close to knowing what was in that mist was when she was leaving me. And then, finally, I understood why she had to go.

The small table in her living room was always filled with magazines. Some were opened to specific pages, some were editions from months ago, and some looked like they’d been thumbed through many times. There was this one magazine that looked brand new and always sat there in the same place on the table, unopened. Because some stories are too much to read without crying.

She could not refuse the chance at happiness. So she broke down her walls, flinging brick away as her eyes began to shine. And then she walked into a castle much more beautiful than the one she was building could ever be.

Carbon cycles through the world like how I cycle around you. I drift from place to place, searching, but finding nothing and ending up at the start again. Sometimes, I get stuck at one point for so long that I feel like I’ll never find you. But I always end up looking for you again.

She had one chain that led to me. I followed that chain, and her, wherever she went, the line taunt between us. One day, the chain slackened and I rushed forward only to find that there was nothing on the other side. And maybe there never was.

There was no side she was on. She was always in the middle, drifting between two opposing ideas. But one day she was no longer allowed to drift and needed to pick a side. She refused to do so and the wall between the two fell down and onto her.
