Growling in my little bowl
My paws scrape the glassy surface
As you pour the water in,

I am not but an animal
A creature with gills, oxygen-free

A dark raven, a headless horse,
Bleeding my transparent blood
Hoping to be something magical

The liquid covers my eyes
It seeps through flesh and bone 
But I don't drown,

I drink in the pain in one large gulp
The escalating diathesis of self-harm,

And show you the scars that I've endured
The headless ends of hallucinations,
The morbid mass crawling out of my chest.

I close my eyes at the sight of your grin.
