I'm covered in fireflies;
All up and down my legs.
They sleep in my skin
And hide my sin,
My precious red fireflies.

They ignite my body
And set it ablaze.
They turn all of my pain
Into a crimson haze,
My precious red fireflies.

They burn through flesh
In a criss-cross mesh
And spread their wings
All over me,
My precious red fireflies.

They hum silently,
Painfully,
Whispering away my shame.
They burn brightly,
Painfully,
Setting my blood aflame,
My precious red fireflies.

I hate them but they love me
But nobody can ever see
Because they refuse to leave.
Not that I want them to;
Because they care,
They understand
More than you ever could do,
My precious red fireflies.

They want me to die,
To jump, to fly.
They want to own me.
They want to set me free
And make it so it can be
Just me
And my precious red fireflies.
I'm not sure if this really makes any sense. The "fireflies" are supposed to be a metaphor, if that helps.

Please let me know what you think. :)
