“Paper Dolls” by Andrea Hornbaker

i am

i am a paper doll

i am a paper cut

i am an open wound

i am a knife

i am a razor blade

i cut deeper than any weapon

i bleed bright red like you

i occupy the same dimension

i am

i am a ray of light

i am a supernova

i am a black hole

i am a negative space

i am nothing

i burn hotter than any star

i shine like the moon

i dissipate like smoke

i am

i am life

i am death

i am love

i am hate

i am passion

i grow colder as time goes on

i breathe like a living being

i die like every other

i am
