scene i:
we meet and your eyes resemble those of a wolves.
my heart beats fast and i trail my fingertips against your calloused skin.

scene ii:
you tell me the secrets of the moon and your own craters.
i scream only whispers that sound like shattered glass and white wine.

scene iii:
you remove my heart from my chest and replace it with a burning coal.
i fall to my knees and you watch as the coal flickers.

scene iv:
you tie my hair in ribbons and burry me in a field of dusty moth wings.
you leave and we both forget my name.
