was a girl



She gave her virginity away to a thief,

she prayed lovingly to that one true shadow.

[true like]


She let monsters out of their closets,

she played with the ideas that weren’t meant to be had.


She defiled her skin, defiled her mind,

she let herself grow painstakingly kind.

[defiled her mind]


There was a girl

who let innocence, taken from her world,

grow cold on the [unforgiving] floor.
