Time had passed
since she saw him last
She was different.
His eyes couldn’t find hers
Inside her black heart, she felt nothing
It had to be this way.
The things she was capable of were emotionally dangerous
His plans would never include her.
She no longer wanted the opportunity to be in his arms
She would never feel alive
It would all be a lie.
Her chronic dissatisfaction would end once she left
and the distance between them becoming permanent.
Her soldier blue eyes and raven hair would just be his memory as she sailed away.
