I have vices that shame me
vices that glorify me
vices that whip a cocoon around me…
vices that see me and want to hide me and protect me … from me.
I am my vices
i am my own cocoon
i am me and there is no hiding me.
i am me…
even when i can’t stand to see me
even when i need a cacoon to protect me and hide me.
i am my father’s daughter…
i am a sliver of a monster you deposited in my mother to create me.
i am a monster using vices to hide the real me because the monster that is in me
i know i can never escape
