It was unfortunate,                                                                                                                                          as it always was, for her,                                                                                                                          that she managed to attract the affections of others – but only for a fading moment.

Vigorously, she poured every ounce of her being into them,                                                        time & time again,                                                                                                                          constantly trying to shed the pieces of her that made her so undesirable,                               slowly undoing herself to please them.

Eventually, everyone grew weary of her inexhaustible tenacity & her ferociously unwavering appetite for attention.

Tired, alone, lost, & permanently broken….

She walked away, a little more shattered each time, still hoping the day would come when she’d no longer be left with that overwhelming inanition.
