Take my love, take my land, take me where I cannot stand. I don't care, I'm still free, you can't take the sky from me. Take me out to the black. Tell 'em I ain't coming back. Burn the land and boil the sea, but you can't take the sky from me.


Across the room
I see a girl
Her eyes brim with fear,
Her face an empty shell
Her thin bones jut out,
Her skin is pulled taut over them
It is the color of ashen snow
She is the personification
of things grotesque
Then, I realize.
I am looking in a mirror.
