    She is young.
    But not so young
    that there aren’t ages she would go back to.
    She tries to be good
    but always waits to fall short.
    she feels guilt
    where there should be anger.
    But she is angry,
    so angry her frame aches with it.
    Her teeth ground and gnashed to nothing,
    her joints pulled to weather bones
    from the strain of being wrenched
    between containment of the rage
    and the terror and the guilt
    of wanting to release it.
    She wishes to be anywhere but where she is
    but couldn’t say where it is
    she’d rather be.
