Disclaimer: Setting, characters, and genius belong to the Tolkien Estate. I make no money from this.

Your blue heart quivers, taken by noxious fumes of divinity. A dying pulse rattles seeping veins, and cerulean beads drip down your face.

The needle falls from your broken fist.

‘It is enough,’ you gasp.

I watch as the embroidery pulls apart. The seams are failing – the barest of threads.

‘Perhaps,’ I say. The word is naked in the perspiring night.

Eyes glaze, and drops of blue tremble at your brow. Beneath your tongue shimmers a lustrous truth. But you will not voice it.

‘It is enough,’ you repeat.

The lie stands unchallenged.

Such agonizing ways you have met yourself.
