This Is What Her Tombstone Reads

By Kayli Harley, TIWP Student

Here is how she died:

Her heart beat too fast, for too long, and burst inside her chest. The tears she shed burned her skin, they eroded her away until there was nothing left. Her bones trembled until they cracked, and when her heart burst there was nothing left to stop her mind from taking a hammer and shattering them. She never got that sick feeling out of her stomach. She never let the light touch her so she grew cold. She ran from fear until her legs gave out. She held her breath until her lungs forgot to breathe. But, if you were to look at her body, nothing had changed.
