I am afraid
Afraid to grow old
To have my hair turn white
And my hands grow gnarled
I am afraid
Of time
Shaping me
Making me
A different person
Changing me
I am afraid
To forget
The time
Long gone
I am afraid
Of running
Out of time

Those moments
In which
My body is too heavy
To move
And i can’t
Find
The will
To breathe

You can’t compare yourself
With the unbroken girls
Surrounding you
You already shattered
Creating
A new form
Of beautiful

My breath
Forming clouds
In winter air
Evidence
Of the flames
Burning
In my stomach
Evidence
The fire
Running through my veins
Fingertips
Melting snow
Ashes
Sticking to my eyelashes
Framing
Blazing eyes
Freezing hot
Tears
Burn
My cheeks
Landing
On burned lips
Breathing
Fire

What do I do
When my breaths
Form clouds
In winter air
No longer
Evidence
Of my frozen insides
Bones
Of ice
Frozen blood
Unable to run
Fingertips
Turning blue
Snowflakes
Sticking to my eyelashes
Framing
Frigid eyes
Burning cold
Tears
Stain my
Snow white
Cheeks
Landing
On blue lips
Breathing
Frozen
Breaths

You whisper
my name
against
my lips

like
a prayer
to the gods

You were such a beautifully kind girl
Now not a whisper is left of her
What happened?
Dear girl
What happened,
To turn the princess
Into the monster
Maybe
It is that we all forgot
That even angels fall
to become the devil

Funny
How you like to hide
In the darkest corners
Of your room
Isn’t that
where the monsters
are?
Or
Are you
The monster?

The walls are
Closing in
The silence
Is unbearable
My breaths
Come faster
Chest heaving
Wild eyes
Unfocused
Nails
Digging into my skin
Trying
To ground me
Tunnelling vision
Scattered
Afraid
Help
Losing strength
I can’t breathe
Panic
Deafening silence
Desperately grasping
For anything
To ground me
Pain
Nails digging into skin
Teeth
Biting my lip
Grounded
Focused
Breathing

Lost

Panic floods me
Rage burns
Sadness settles heavily in my stomach
Rage burns
Panic floods me
Silence is left
Pressing down on my lungs
I’d rather burn
I’d rather drown
Than choke on every breath
