The Tiger

Chapter 1


by: Apathy_
My body isn't ruined
How dare you suggest that?
C'mon, you know you believe me
It was really just the cat.

No, I don't cover my arms
For the reasons that you think.
I'm actually not really that cold
I'm just hiding the stripes of pink.

I really don't think you should know
Exactly what goes on in the dark.
I think you shouldn't pay attention to
The match-stick's bright spark.

Of course I'm getting better.
What do you take me for?
D'you really think I'd lie to you?
I might as well be at war.

My body isn't ruined
I'm a motherfucking tiger
Who's earned her stripes.
