In the quiet, I heard my heart

Beating, but not quite right

Deep inside, I saw the leeches

Fattened and happy, leaving me anemic

I struck a match, and set myself on fire

The leeches are dead, and I am blackened cinder

Smiling like a cheshire, I dipped my fingers in the ashes

Lucky girl, you get to color charcoal
