She says...

For A.B., as usual

She says, looking him in the eyes unflinchingly:
Why do you call me your nightmare incubate?
Is it to tickle your vanity?
You used to think of me so differently,
said you loved me, only me.
Told me I was so beautiful that simply
looking at me took you to a different world.
Now, tell me, where did all that go?
How did I become your nightmare incubate?

- Leonard "It's All Vanity" Blumfeld

Written using incubate, nightmare and vanity from 3WW.

Nice take on the prompt. I like the term "nightmare incubate." Takes on a life of its own.

Change. Sometimes it happens without a plan. Good take on the prompt!

"looking at me took you to a different planet"

Somehow I wonder if that was misinterpreted. Perhaps the original intent was more along the lines of, "to the moon, Alice!"
