she was made to live on Paradise and Paradise was made for her.

but something changed.
this change echoed through Paradise, unspoken yet irrevocable.

she was banished from Paradise though Paradise remained.
it’s for the best.
if she had stayed on Paradise, she would have destroyed it.

her banishment from Paradise is infinite.
she cannot avoid this life.

yet in its eternity (with neither beginning nor end)
lies the possibility that she might in fact be on Paradise...
at this very moment, whether she knows it or not.

-- Kafka, loosely interpreted
