Words by Kayssie K.
Don't talk so loud,
Her heart might hear you and remember.
You blew her bare,
Like a tree in December
when you left.
Now her strings are stretched-out and can only play in the bass cleft.
I've paralysed her heart so it won't beat for you anymore ,
And I've covered your tracks so her limbs only flicker but allow her to stand tall like a sycamore.
So hush hurt!
She needs to rest.
You can stay as long as you want,
As long as you don't make too much noise.
Be a whisper.
She doesn't need this right now.
