Paperclips are binding me at the hips,

I look up to you and see your lips

Quivering at the very sight of me.

My heart was pounding as if my body was

Boundless.

You,

Were paperless, you never hurt

Anybody.

While I hurt

Everybody.

I was just trying to help

But I can’t help but leave tiny cuts

On everyone I touch.

How did I end up here?

I watched the innocence get sucked away from you

As you stood staring at my lifeless body in front of you.

I can see you losing your mind.

I watched you get smaller as I got taller,

High above in the sky,

I got lifted into nothingness.
