folding,fading

i think, i think i might be fading
fading or maybe shrinking
maybe both
i think i may be folding
the soft parts of my body
so i take up less space
the box i need to fit in
the small space
is much smaller than i
so i keep fading, shrinking, folding
my bones ache
like growing pains, but shrinking pains
compression and cracks in my thick skin
my skin is not thick anymore
i am soft and shrinking and fading
sometimes i think maybe, maybe
it is not fading but change
it may be rebirth after long periods of danger
my fading and folding and shrinking
it might be metamorphosis
maybe i'll walk tall again
walk outside in full HD
no longer shrinking, no longer fading
maybe the box will break
and i'll run free
