Patti Smith when she was “just a kid”. See more at Flavorwire. 

"He would be a smothering cloak, a velvet petal. It was not the thought  but the shape of the thought that tormented him. It suspended above him,  then mutely dropped, causing his heart to pound so hard, so  irregularly, that his skin vibrated and he felt as if he were beneath a  lurid mask, sensual yet suffocating.
"I thought I would be with him when he died, but I was not. I followed  the stages of his passage until close to eleven, when I heard him for  the last time, breathing with such force that it obscured the voice of  his brother on the phone. For some reason, this sound filled me with a  strange happiness as I climbed the stairs to go to sleep. He is still  alive, I was thinking. He is still alive."
