I used to see these letters,
As ink on sun-kissed sand
But now they are feathers,
Five fingers of a hand

I thought I'd already devoured,
These character-thin shades
Only to find I cowered,
Before ink-made blades

Your words have broken me,
They've left me weak and small
My whales in a paper sea
Were the very cause of my fall
