i am not a goddess
nor do i
believe i wish to
be one.

i think
i'd rather be a half-forgotten
fairy tale
or a girl with opium
eyes and a
glass tongue;
an angel
who doesn't believe in
god, an
angel who
kisses demons with lips
that whisper poetry as artificial
as the mannequins in a
department store.

i want wings:
appendages stitched from
dying butterflies
and the feathers you
can find on
the ground - dirty,
ripped, but still
beautiful.

and i would soar
higher and higher
until i
couldn't breathe
and buy up
all the stars.

if i am being
honest,
i fall in love with
dragon girls
and wolf boys
much like the way a candle
melts; fast, hot, and dripping
wax down the side.

but
for now
i just want to fit
between these ugly bones
and the too-tight skin
that stretches across them.
i just really
don't feel like myself
and some days it
drives me mad.

This is lovely. I really like the imagery, though it's sad at the end.
