"I write only because
there is a voice within me
that will not be still."

- YOURSELF (Punk.Snowflake)

Oh, to be a flea...
to dig myself under the shins
of liars and abusers, and eat their blood away,
slowly... then, to leave them,


fallen on their sides and with no dignity,

anemic and pale, to die -


And I would escape then, full and happy,
red as a sunset inside, and pleased with myself -
But, in reality, I guess I am too small


to truthfully make a difference

after all...

"Have you ever looked fear in the face and said, 'I just don't care.'?"

This is just...something else. Really, the simple, creepy imagery is so powerful. This is so relatable too, everyone has enemy's they'd like to crawl under, hurt, even if they're too small - love this, it's amazing! :)
