Favorite Quote:
"To these the past hath its phantoms,
More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"
- Isabella Banks


Let me repair my corroded motherboard,
Let me pick apart the arsenic-lined bones of my body.
Let me destroy the mildew left on my pacemaker,
Let me in, let me in, let me in.

Let me kiss the wires I once cut,
Let me come to terms with who I am.
Let me inside myself,
Let me in, let me in, let me in.

Let me leave this digital disease behind.
Let me shine a light in the umbric shell I have become, melting the steel away.
Let me heal my dying body.
Let me in, let me in, let me in.

Let me feel my skin again.
Let me touch my hair,
Let me be human.
Let me in, let me in, let me in.

Let me be restrained by the physicality of a breathing body,
Let me be free from the bonds of batteries.
Let me adore my imperfect perfections,
Let me in, Let me in, Let me in,

And I won’t leave again.
