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
