Polly Scattergood - Cocoon
As I stumble, look away,
Don’t want you to see me this way,
I am no good,
I am no good at all,
Nobody catch me when I fall

Friend at the window - c. 1900s - (Via)
Veronica Lake by Eugene Robert Richee, publicity still for “The Glass Key”, 1942.
I demand unconditional love and complete freedom. That is why I am terrible.
Death comes to me again, a girl
in a cotton slip, barefoot, giggling.
It’s not so terrible she tells me,
not like you think, all darkness
and silence. There are windchimes
and the smell of lemons, some days
it rains, but more often the air is dry
and sweet. I sit beneath the staircase
built from hair and bone and listen
to the voices of the living. I like it,
she says, shaking the dust from her hair,
especially when they fight, and when they sing.
