She's (1 syllable)
inclined (2 syllables)
to want more (3 syllables)
to ease her mind (4 syllables)
than do you or I. (5 syllables)
She disappears to find (6 syllables)
anonymous solitude. (7 syllables)
We look for it, but we are blind. (8 syllables)
Left behind, we become mere figments (9 syllables)
of her illusions; . . . . we call her unkind. (10 syllables)
