C O N S T A N T

I am still, I am here, I am watching

A beep enters and goes, so fleeting

Another...

Lights, bodies moving, high frequency surrounds her

I am still, I am here, I am watching

A cacophony of fear wraps around her like a warm jacket

Needing more, this soothing jacket of acidity gets tighter

Piercing through her, it races up and down

Protecting, fixing, clenching

I am still, I am here, I am watching

I take off her jacket. The cold, so foreign

Shocking and overwhelming as ice rushes through her veins

I soothe her, embracing her and the ice

I am still, I am here, I am watching

She is me, I am her
