She could feel herself splitting apart
Her inside separating from her outside
Too fast /  much /  soon
Not ready for the pain that comes next.

Her bones vibrated from the sound
Of the door slamming shut
Locking her in / out / up
She carelessly left it open once.

Never again would she falter this way
She listened for the click
of the lights / the gun / the door
And she left the house, ready now and careful.
