A day off from myself (The Swan Bride)

this room’s a little strange & i’m like a stranger too, dear diary i’m going mad, there’s a monster under my bed getting ready to eat i can’t stand my own reflection anymore, but the mirrors are patient ‘knock! knock! knock!’ on the window block ‘hey, raven, did you come for a talk?’ i need a day off from myself. stealing the pieces, fragments & glimpses of time from underneath my pillow i’m getting lost in between the walls at home as it’s growing small we never talked, but you brought me a chalk & i draw a cellar door on the floor a few steps down the stairs somewhere to the other place i need a day off from myself. in the darkness waits my other place i need a day off from myself
