There’s a moth trying to beat itself to death against the lightbulb on the ceiling.
And here I am, alone in the bathroom, holding a razor blade at the ready. Guess we all make do in lieu of a moon.
Beneath the mirror, a black feather—a gift, a worthless thing—waits and watches.
And I remember the screams, and the tears. And because I remember, I won’t ever forgive myself for what I let her do to destroy me. I turn my back on my reflection, turn the razor over on my skin.
At least, tonight—after—I’ll get to see him.
For now, I’m dreaming of wings.
