stress --> fracture

pounding on the pavement

her daily self-enslavement

burning candles to their wicks

refusing to rest even when sick

depleting reserves of calcium

her obsession with carpe diem

will undoubtedly begin to cripple

her; the most powerful are still brittle

second strongest bone in the body

repetitive tears and wounds slowly

lining up in a sinister fashion

til they align, a twisted constellation

a final crack, sounds like a whip;

mental health gives way; she trips

tiny little stress fractures

they all eventually break her
