"Shame Threw Me"

Break every bone in my body

Change me

Rearrange me

Pull my skin off the tattered mess

No more identities 

Someone else did this

My face explodes

Eyes splattered onto coarse fabric of dark gloves

That will follow her home at night

My mouth

Hanging open where my mind used to think

Between who I'll be

And who I'd rather be.
