So I see spiders wearing raindrop hats
I see friends and smiles and love
I see fish that look like blankets
But then I see.... Myself
I see the scars of bullying and self-harm
I see the pigment fading from my arms
I see..... I see the person people see me as
The girl who never got asked to dance
The girl who never got asked out
The girl who almost ended it all
The girl who tells people secrets only to have people give them away
The girl who has never truly been.... Happy
And so I sit and wait for happiness
So I could possibly be as happy
As the spiders with raindrop hats

(2013)
