He hurt her

Not with his fists

But with his eyes

With his crooked nose and the scar above his left eyebrow

Her eyes grew dark, leaving shadows in their wake

Her touch a foreign sensation

Her face a distant memory

their love forgotten

and with every step

he lost her more

her name

her scent

her touch

her face

her place in that ever-growing space

she lay

ever so silent

ever so still

her eyes sinking

her new friends eating

and eating

hallow once more
