Trigger Warning: Abuse
Any resemblance to real persons, living or dead, is coincidental.
Are you now a child in your hands?
Do you throw things?
Do you scream at yourself
inside the soundproof walls of the skull where you live?
(they say that people in skull houses shouldn’t throw stones)
Have you ever shaken yourself
when you couldn’t stop yourself from crying?
(you didn’t know how to stop crying, did you?)
Have you ever abandoned yourself for days at a time?
Left nothing but garbage in the cupboards-
When you knew that was the only food you’d be able to find?
Have even you seen yourself as a boat
to carry other people’s dreams?
Your body a cushion for the whims of other bodies?
Have you ever told yourself to shut the hell up
when you were weeping
begging for at least one person to believe you?
Someone left an anonymous tip-
(the voice on the line- could it have been yours?)
We just need you to ask a few questions,
And we’d like you to take a look around the place.
