i walk with my wings
on broken glass
holding them tight

if i drop them
they will shatter
and it will be
impossible
to put them back together

everybody sees them on my back
fluttering perfectly
but they were torn
ripped out
by myself

i still have the scars
but its just too easy to hide them
a few might catch a glimpse
of purple and blue patches
of black stitching
of red stains

but they just stare
shake their heads
tell themselves
it couldn’t be

if they ask
i deny everything
im okay
im alright

but everytime i say it
the purple and blue
the black
the red
they get more vibrant

the pain rushes to my head
now when im asleep
confusing me constantly

i dont know where to turn
not even my dreams can save me now
