question.

that she
heard
the familiar
drone;
the dark
nursery rhyme,
that enveloped
her brain
before she
had a moment
to realise;
“can i just die now?”

yes, she had
heard it before;
yes, she had
fought it, and won.
but the battle
was exhausting,
and war can only
just be held at bay.

for so long,
the constant
beat; the devastating
monotone and
repetition;
it held her in
a certain comfort
of familiarity and control.
this time
was different;
mostly due to
its presence
highlighting the
longest absence
she could remember.
“can i just die now?”
