sure how long she'd been gone. The lights flickered and then went
out. Then the sirens began to sound, and red lights took over. She
waited for the usual suits and the white coats to enter her room, it'd
been like clock-work. They'd enter her room ask her a few questions,
insist she take some pill and if she resisted they'd hold her down and
inject her then give her the pill.
She waited, expected to be hurried out or moved but nothing happened.
The lights flickered back on briefly before going out completely
again this time the red lights and sirens took on a new urgency.
A female voice came over the intercom "There's been a breach in the

The voice continued to drone down and then there was a clicking on the

I call you outAs I fall down the rabbit holeI call you out in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Deeper it gets
I can't see up from down
Maybe the truth wasn't what I found
But something meant to confound
I call you out
tell the truth
you lied about things in your youth
the truth stings my eyes
I can't believe I trusted your lies
Still are they really what they seem?
Am I truly thinking?
I can't tell whom to trust
Which way is up
Who should be dust?
Do I trust you? I don't know
the eyes would tell me
I can't look into those
my feelings for you I froze
I have to trust instinct
Still I can't think..
What would compel
Such a cruel spell?
Perhaps I should continue to dwell..
Cold logic rests
my heart no longer to invest
I can't decide
could you be the mastermind?
you think things through, well timed...
Still what would you hope to gain?
Nothing.. Perhaps I should refrain
working through this twisted path
I don't know where I turn
Only feeling bridges burn
I call out to the beasts within
Face it down once again
Fear and pain faded to black
I'm within r
Mis-timedI look into your eyes, see the passions that you hideMis-timed in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
So many things you'd say, if your hands weren't tied
It's always been the timing, that keeps us far away
When you want me closer, I'm afraid to stay
And just when I've changed my mind
Those hands that held me tight re-bind
And so the circle'd dance follows it's chosen path
The broken pieces of the heart, more then we both hath
Our hearts are always closer, then we like to admit
But the way things are now, perhaps it's time to quit
I'm tired of the fighting, and the way things seem to be
The soft look in your eyes hurts, when you see into me
It's like you fear our closeness, but long for it as well
Almost a painful ending, like a broken twisted spell
Your arms you wrap around me, holding on so tight
But deep inside, you push me back an internal fight
When sleep has claimed your eyes, you hold me so dear
But when you're awake, you push me back in fear
I feel drawn to protect you, and to run away so far
Chasing after you, is like chasi
Tell me the storyTell me the story of a heroTell me the story in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Turned himself back from zero
Made me dream outside my cell
Knew me so very well
Tell me the story of an angel
A love that doesn't gauge well
Hearts beating in a distant time
Souls waiting for a patient sign
Tell me the story of a shining star
One that's gone so very far
Loves mark upon their face
Eyes lit with patient grace
Tell me the story of Love
One that never goes when push comes to shove
Hopeless romantic of my dreams
More than he truly seems
Tell me the story of fate
Before I finally lock the gate
Tried and true the methods of the heart
Never to be torn apart
