but you’re not a human being, are you?
just a beating heart,
with good intentions,
and the ashes of everyone you ever loved
burning behind you.

they’d call you icarus.
but we all know it isn’t the sun you flew
                                                                      too
                                                                           close
                                                                                   to.
rise and be reborn,
wearing all the corpses you created,
with hands that have 
never
been 
your
own.

because you’re not a human being, are you?
just a machine,
full of broken parts,
with bad intentions,
standing before a galaxy
that never stood a chance.
