A gun shot

The silence of cold steel

Even though it’s not

Something I could ever conceal

Whenever I asked, she always replied, “fine”

I just assumed that meant she was okay

Nothing about her hinted at the malign

intention behind her external display

Her tweets got more frequent

Her Instagram posts more intense

The darker her content

The less it made any sense

The next time somebody doesn’t look like they’ll pull through

I think I’ll handle it better, I’ll know what to do
