Description
“I want to build sandcastles with the same innocence of a child’s. Let me build my self by putting my own pieces back together. See me, as I see pain”

Her body rigid. Becoming more still with every new mould. Her body constantly changing under the cast leaves her. As the parts strengthen, she suffers. Her movements are restricted and her breath weakens, she comes closer to all that she has gone through. Her wings broken, mouth gagged, fists tense. Her knees are weak and her legs unable to walk.
