color falls from my world
drinking into the poisoned canvas
melting blood red
a single note
like blackboard music
raking my mind down
down
screaming
like nails

~Lilith~


... And the Wind City floated along above the land, on towards what lay ahead.

... nightmares. :nod: Something Lilith might write. Lilith is one of my characters from the Wind-City tales: The Night Crew

P. S. My third contribution to ~Winterflood's project ~WindCity.

Tales from the Wind City :iconwind-city:

Wind City is Copyright(c) 2007 Stephen ~Winterflood

Welcome to the ~WindCity and the stories of the people that live there; tales that don't always follow each other over time.

[I give ~Winterflood the right to reproduce this story in ~WindCity, if he should so wish!]

Probably shouldn't listen to this before sleeping, but it's so good ... :rose:

Paint it black by W.A.S.P.

I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors anymore I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes

I see a line of cars and they're all painted black
With flowers and my love both never to come back
I see people turn their heads and quickly look away
Like a new born baby it just happens every day

I look inside myself and see my heart is black
I see my red door and must have it painted black
Maybe then I'll fade away and not have to face the facts
It's not easy facin' up when your whole world is black

No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue
I could not foresee this thing happening to you

If I look hard enough into the settin' sun
My love will laugh with me before the mornin' comes

I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors anymore I want them to turn black
I see the girls go by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes

Hmm, hmm, hmm,...

I wanna see it tainted, tainted black
Black as night, black as coal
I wanna see the sun blotted out from the sky
I wanna see it tainted, tainted, tainted, tainted black
Yeah!

Hmm, hmm, hmm,...

:nod: It's more like sleep paralysis, pretty frightening, until you train yourself to recognize it, then all you do is wait for your body to catch up with your mind ... which is already awake. More info that you asked for LOL, sorry about that. :hug: Thanks for reading, Cindy.

My love will laugh with me before the mornin' comes"
