She can’t sleep without him, yet he never noticed.

Unaware, unengaged, unattached and never devoted.

And yes, his lack of interest was definitely noted…

But as a child, She was taught to love diamond rings and pin curls, shiny things and tiny pearls.

These lessons stayed as she grew up and out into the world.

And like all the other little girls

taught to love someone who isn’t there, she’d hug him and love him and drag him everywhere.

Felt no different then when she used to embrace her childhood teddy bear.
