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



Were paperless, you never hurt


While I hurt


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.
