Undone

Fri, 01/30/2015 - 10:00 -- madicat

Flay the skin away

Piece by piece

Layer after layer

 

What am I now?

 

Am I

The words tumbling out of my mouth

The thoughts rolling in my head

The despair deep in my heart

 

Or just bones?

 

Am I

The wind whipping through my hair

The grass beneath my feet

The salty tears that unite me with the ocean

 

Or just bones?
