what if we’re like butterflies


I heal quicker physically than emotionally 

You can see that by looking at my own body

You'll see the scars, made by my own heart

You'll see how they've healed, and how i'm ashamed so I keep them not revealed

I used to run off into this field

I ran out of fear, I would try to disappear

And if you look at me, still to this day, I run from despair

These are the scars down further from the skin, the ones that are still hurting and healing

And are made from the people who mortify my morals

And leave me with memories that will haunt me for centuries
