Seeing it was malevolently satisfying
drip drip drip
It seemed perfect, the way it slid down my arm
It formed an intricate shape, an art form, a web

What if I mundanely turn into "the depressed girl", "the dead girl"? Is that all I am destined for in this life?
I lifted myself up, pressed the wound and declared;
"I am alive"
