His Story

Numbers never mattered, but they were always counted

He revealed, she withdrew

She remembered every single time

A number

He loved hard and all that lie in between were space


A role which he needed to play in order to feel he’d left a mark in the world

Made them feel, special?


He controlled every move

A metaphorical puppetmaster but no strings

Just words

He found her language and used it


She would fight, he would touch

She would withdraw, he would…


She would find a wall

Touch. Her wall crumbled
