At First, It Seemed...

Somedays she woke up in a body that wasn't hers.
From a space she'd never been before, a voice said:
I am here to test you. Then, it took her only weapons:

her heart, her mind, her vocal chords.

And like a teacher, its shadow followed her
to the ends of the earth or at least to the corners
of her world whispering I have loved you more

than you are worth.
