The Helm

It occurs to me that we mostly break
Our own hearts
What was it that she said again?
What was it that she did again?

She’s not even here now
She’s not even doing anything now
Was she
Ever?

‘I think I made you up
Inside my head’
I think you made me up
Inside your head

Is it
Is it really then
Only our
Own hearts
That we get to
Encircle?
