Hollow Your Bones

I tried to function,

Despite the cold,

Tried to deny the

Heaviness mixed in my

Marrow what it wanted.

And yet here I stand, light

On my feet, floating above

Solid rooftops. And I might

Be hollow and empty,

But I swear I can't fly away,

Because I have a family,

People I have to protect.

The End
