It's dark here
And I'm wandering
Through coloured halls with eyes that follow me
And all these sudden wounds are crippling me
But in front of my eyes a figure begins shifting
Crimson moves, could I possibly be dreaming?
As I feel my body entangled in thorns
And I collapse within a nightmare of fabricated beauty
My eyes decieve me
A child calls out to me
And a colorful world erupts around my memory
What sort of twisted mind could create a world so cruel and fascinating?
In which dazzling monsters bargain for each other's souls
Where blood runs like acrylic paint
And heavy hearts drag behind jealous smiles
My hands are shaking
As I hold them out to you
Escape with me, I promised that I'd rescue you
But outside of this strange dream
Would you even remember me?
I suppose you'll just have to take my hand and see
Ib's Lullaby [Draft]Ib's Lullaby [Draft]3 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
[In the early afternoon, under a gray sky, Ib and her parents were on their way to an art gallery.
"Did you remember everything, Ib?
Oh! Do you have your handkerchief? You know, the one you got for your birthday?
Keep it safe in your pocket, okay? Don't lose it!]
Come, let us play a game
No adults will ever know
That you disappeared
To our little show
Come into the portal
Many friends are waiting
For you to arrive
To a world of paintings
Just take a step
Into the deep Abyss
You'll be fine, just trust me
We promise that you won't be missed
Keep your rose close to you
5 petals, see?
Each one that's pulled off
Represents an injury
Don't get too close to the walls
Don't break the mannequins
Each holds many consequences
Make sure you don't lose your senses
Come, let us play a game
A game which will risk your life
Three you will hold
Don't fill them with strife
Such a colorful world
For you all to explore
Don't get lost in it
Just keep walking forward
Find the key and
Quickly head for home

He shook his head, not looking at me. I touched my hand to his back tentatively, letting it rest there when he didn't pull away.
"Gerard," I started, but then I stopped. What could I tell him to make him feel better? I had no idea, "I really don't know what to say. I mean, it's as big a shock to me as it is to you. I cou -"
"It's just that everything's happening all at once," he cut in, "I'm really confused."
He looked up at me, eyes shining with tears, "Frankie, I have... I have something to tell you. I - you, I mean... here."
He leaned forwards and pressed his lips against mine gently. He pulled away, biting his lip.
I was speechless. So Gerard did like me like that. I must have given him the wrong impression, though, as he moved away.
"Sorry Frankie, I -"
"No. Don't be." I smiled at him, "Gerard, I feel the same."
He looked up at me and smiled.
"Guys!" Bob called, "They're letting us see Ray now! He's gonna be okay!"
I grinned at Gerard. He laughed, holding

and I do not blush jaundice through my cheeks.

although my spine;
it boasts an ironic vertebrae,
it is a long tally of the hearts I have broken

I am out of place.

I lack exceptionality in all but my ordinariness.
