The list of things that broke her were
It’s always crazy ending a relationship on the phone.
Standing motionless / watching the fan turns the wind into a ball
Life went & came back in the bulb
Your bones got filled with darkness / your body got older than the night standing outside the door.
You read an old newspaper you abandoned two years ago,
play puzzles / read obituary of a girl that strangled her tears into blood.
You gave her breath / you learnt how to die by reading old suicide stories.
Nobody thought you how to be strong / You experienced heartbreak at the age of nineteen,
so you felt like a stone against the car tyre; stopping it from chasing sunlight down the sloping road
4:23PM, today you got robbed alone in your bed room
Cyanide pills / poem / letter, and a body were the pictures we took when the robber left with your breath.
