Polaroid

You are a tragic creature

But everyone thinks you’re an angel

They think your glow has never been tainted

They think your image is the truth

 .

They don’t know you’ve been knocked down

Or how you’ve torn yourself apart

They don’t know that you have pain

They forget that you are human

 .

They want you to be their butterfly

But you want to be the ocean

Deep and terrible and beautiful and full

They don’t know your mysteries; they don’t know your truth.
