"Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”- Neil Gaiman, Coraline

Anything would be better
than living like this
when breathing is painful
And I, no more than a cyst
Broken and waiting
To take life by the hand
I am still empty
Yet I am not bland.
Senseless and drowning
Sweetening life with blood
and caffeine,
There's never a window big enough
to empty our reasoning
Never enough colors
To cover our canvasing
Never enough body
To spare us the shame
Never enough gold
To exempt the blame.
