She looks at him, looks away. Disgusted.
That feeds the monster. Makes him grow angry.
Look him in the eyes. Maybe there is more.
Window overlooking the horizon.
She will never know. Not even one chance.
The monster grows weary. Tired of games.
Look down, fake a smile, but don’t dismiss.
No student from class. This is punishment.
The monster gets no relief from his home.
The people, the comfort others offer.
The monster broods because he cannot breed.
There are no others like him that still live.
So the townspeople chase him with their eyes.
Solitude is confinement. Let him out.
Explore the world and not be chased away.
Too late for that. His heart shrinks every time.
Overwhelms the monster with his small brain.
Face turns to fire. The torture remains.
Like a scar that doesn’t leave, but festers.
The fire consumes, destroys his nothing.
Flames fill his vision, smoke inhaled. Choking.
Searing lungs just wanting to be released.
To cry for help, but there is nobody.
The sea comes to wash away destruction.
The waves crush him. He is drowning and dies.
