they've watched me very closely

i've been their greatest case study 

they've tattooed my name on their bones

the girl who is beautifully broken 

what a self-inflicted end i've met

buried away because i refused

to have my cold skin fed to famished flames

deep in the dark

my brain and heart shall despoil
