She walks the sidewalks with confidence.

The wind breathes past & through her

but she doesn’t feel it

She doesn’t feel anything

one

two

three

Count the steps to focus on what’s real

four

five

six

Keep walking

Keep breathing

Don’t let them know you’re just a shell of a woman.

If you keep walking

with you head held high

the illusion will stay pristine.

Don’t let them know.

Soon you’ll walk far away & leave it all behind.
