Skin and bones under paper skin-
Ghost white, almost faintly glowing,
She scares me suddenly
With her fragility.
She looks different, somehow,
And she feels far away.
My own problems once seemed big
But they were small and unimportant.
She never wanted to be like this-
She didn’t want to lose herself,
But here we are
Listening to the same story once again.
Sometimes we laugh and in that moment we forget.
