half n half

Evil eyes for protection, an ego projection,
i'm hiding, i'm fighting, scared of your rejection
looking at the bodies on the battlefield and wincing
thinking this could be me, why does no one else seem scared?
i'm in my head looking through myself the shadows
and spider houses clutter the edges, the perfect bite
save for you, i'm SAFE for you.
i'm the box of chocolates, the baker knows no bounds,
upsetting and down setting, i feel like i'm being tricked,
all the bleeding hearts as i walk down the aisle, white and red
down my length, the trim of lace snagged
ripped through and soaked, angry sticks poke through
the skin, it's enough to feel alive again.
