I can walk through fire

and ice

with the monsters at my heels


another day

another song

but the question is

am I strong enough

to look you in the eye?

now that would be a triumph...


I am a veteran

my battle scars

cover me like a blanket


my bones are made of glass

my eyes are silk pieces of memory

my skin is velvet and it burns


never question

the words of a dead girl
