Return?

stomach lurching
heart yearning
eyes heavy with unfallen tears
she awoke feeling sinkingly alone

when the other girls leave
they say
I will always return

return?
always?

is that all she would ever be?
a place holder
a constant bookmark?
she thought this story was hers
is she even in the book?

haunting
hurting
this morning she awoke
and for a moment the whole world felt
oppressively alone
