Something Wicked This Way Comes

Lighting slices the sky overhead.

Thin is the veil 'tween living and dead.

In dark clouds, the thunder drums.

Something wicked this way comes.

"Midnight" trills the bell tower.

Evil's afoot this witching hour.

With ghostly voices, the air hums,

Something wicked this way comes.

Not a being around, he scales the gate.

Behind a stone he lies in wait.

Icy air chills and numbs.

Something wicked this way comes.

Three figures arrive, cloaked and dark.

Between the hags appears a spark.

Of their chant, he hears only some,

"Something wicked this way comes."

A prophecy to swell his ambitions,

Or invincibility-predicting apparitions,

He hopes will follow the threesome's,

"Something wicked this way comes."

But alas, a green light

Splits the black night.

He's struck in the head.

They've killed him dead.


Caterpillar in a dark cocoon

Flower bud about to bloom

Star outshone by the full moon

I know my time is coming soon

Like a beautiful butterfly

Colorful blossom opened wide

Meteoroid slicing the sky

Now it's my time to shine

The old me, she's long gone

Flip it over, a new card drawn

No longer just a pawn

Moving up, moving on

I guess I'm not the girl you knew

I'm better since you said we're through

Look at me know. Joke's on you

I loved, I learned, I broke, I grew

Ignore the past; it's over now

Want me back? I'll tell you how

Take a stand, take a vow

Going back isn't allowed
