icarus

i am icarus

i built my wings of dreams and tattoos

when i got too close to the sun

in one of my famous manias

the tattoos scorched and

the dreams started to drop off

one by one

it was then i became a

fallen woman

i didn’t heed the others’ advice

and i plummeted into the depths

of the sea of regret

laughing the whole way down
