Take it Off

i feel it coming on again
just like last time
so pretty and white
why does it rip through me like this?
you liked leaving me behind
walking away felt so real to you
with the cracks i’m slipping into i’m not real anymore
started out small
taking down the zipper dress
one by one i cut the pieces off
just a blood stained concrete
that’s me
love me!
i screamed
just too loud
so i took it off
so you could see my bones
now i see all the lines along my arms
i call it war paint
tiger stripe camoflauge
jungle of flesh tones
dye me different colors, i need new skin
i can’t scrub the old stuff off
isn’t she beautiful when derranged
i’ll cut you free caged cardinal sin
it’s time to take it off again
