saying nothing because you don't feel safe
holding your breath so you don't hear your heartbeat
not letting him see you cry as he disappears into illusion
just one more look...no, remember your boundaries
Phew, Saturn wipes his brow, that was close!
If only she'd let him in, muses Neptune.
Why? Sooner or later, he'd still break her heart.
Not necessarily my cynical friend, not if she had faith.
You've been eating too many brownies!
Haven't you heard that chocolate is an aphrodisiac?
I give up, sighs Saturn, you're hopeless.
To the contrary, replies Neptune, I am hope.
