Pupae

The darkness creeps
inside me
like tiny ripples
in the sea
slowly
tearing
the layers
of my heart
until
it is open
& throbbing
for all to see
remembering
emotions i felt
it was so
long ago
they’re eating
me, again
I struggle
to stand
to free myself
from what?
what is it
i wish to escape
empty moments
in life
i shrug
my shoulders
in disbelief
we are all skin
wrapped inside
waiting for moments
to break free
untrustworthy
and fragile
when left outside
two twins
and a girl
the ugly truth
stood still
& now it was time
to crawl back
into my shell
of skin
wondering
if I was
any safer
than before.
