fallen

--------------------------------

marks of sin
- his marks -
cover me
in hidden places
marks of pain
pleasure
want
need
trust...?
(never trust.)
can't they see
how thin
how sick
how wrong
i am?
i am wrong.

was i ever right?
was i better?
always more than human;
always terribly human.

no one understands.
no one could understand.
(well...almost no one.
don't want her understanding...
do i?)

but he...
helps me heal
makes me feel
makes me forget
how far i've fallen
how i've lost my way
lost my hope
lost my faith
in myself
in others
in humanity.

i've forgotten why i'm saving them.
