elephant

This song makes me wanna pull my hair out. Yeah, she was prone to hyperbole, but this time it was really true. She wound the hair around her fingers and tugged, gently, until she felt the familiar buzz and the itch began, increasing, pulling, itching, burning, and then her nails were raking her scalp, tangling her hair, catching a tab of skin, hesitating, then digging at it, pulling it loose, yanking hard, skin and hair ripping from her head, letting it fly out the open window. Maybe I should stop listening to this shit. Or start biting my fingernails again.

This week's 100 Word Song at My Blog Can Beat Up Your Blog is "Elephant" by Damien Rice.
