She was such a lost soul

Forgetting, forgotten, forgettable

Lost as she was in the light of her goal

Safe in the darkness of her mind

 

Caught in the hurricane of his brown eyes

Howling wind, torrents of butterflies

Whipped her lashes

Exposed the slashes on her arms

 

Tears were her comfort, her consolation

Life was a forgeign, ungraspable thing

Til all her windows were shattered

With the song of beauty, the voice did ring

 

Caught in the hurricane of his brown eyes

Howling wind, torrents of butterflies

Whipped her lashes

Exposed the slashes on her arms

 

Held by the hand, dropped the knives

Closed her eyes, held her breath

Breathing in her waking alive

Open then saw the face that was next

 

Caught up, caught up, caught up, caught up, caught up... then let down

 

Just for a moment

The world became known

One briefest smile

Then all was gone

 

Back, snap into the darkness

Away faster than ever she flew

Sinking, slinking, spiralling downward

Til at last her final peace she knew

 

Held by the hand, dropped the knives

Closed her eyes, held her breath

Breathing in her waking alive

Open then saw the face that was next
