On a night when you can’t seem to think straight
Tears wash away a layer of your face
Revealing someone you thought you’d outgrown
To show you for, maybe, the person you really are
Trying to grow up
Crawling in your own skin each day
Until finally you can’t stop scratching at the pink creature you’ve found yourself to be
A girl who wants to run away
Were you really growing up at all?
