She

She was shy, says her mouth
sealed
shut
Insightful, says the notes in the
margins
of
books

She had a wandering mind, says
the
messy
room
She wasn’t close to her family, says
the reluctance to
speak
about them

Neither She or her family spoke
to or about
each other,
says the unspoken words
But She is gone
She is gone
and only her family
knows
why
