ImageI found this hiding
in a corner
(dark and damaged)
where I left it
to stay safe.

The sunlight ripped my limbs off
trampled on my fingers, nerves still
blinded me through
shuttered lids
burned my eyes
through lashes
melted off
like ice
Stripped my voice and left me
silent, hearing
but the
that stopped my heart

There were cobwebs everywhere
and the spiders sewed me up
with heavy thread.

When the sun comes back
I’ll offer this
to you.
