she held her breath, thought catalyzed the panic incandescent death hiding just beneath the epidermis "oh not again," she thought - she'd told them she was just like them and for a decade, she was there is a desperation in the irises of her eyes the marks from all the years that terror kept her whole she learns the movements and she doesn't bat an eye when they break all her brittle bones anymore THIS IS ALL I HAVE TO BE obscure the fractured self with practiced legitimacy WHEN IT KILLS ME i won't mind; there will be no difference on the inside she got away, too burnt to feel the damage months into days, and the fear she felt at those around her never the same, she thought - empathy blurred into something more than she could take so she ran there is a desperation in the irises of her eyes the marks from all the years that terror kept her whole she learns the movements and she doesn't bat an eye when they break all her brittle bones anymore THIS IS ALL I HAVE TO BE mutilate the soul under the lie of cold necessity WHEN IT KILLS ME i won't mind; there will be no difference on the inside it hasn't changed, the terror hasn't gone away but when she's safe for a moment, she knows she peels away a tiny piece of all the noise she's built up to survive and it's so... THIS IS ALL I WANT TO BE lost between the years, the static swallowed all belief in safety I CAN'T TELL if i'm alive but something feels different on the inside
