Words dribble down the hollow crevice of my spine like waterfall over rocks
Ink thunders through my veins alongside spindled gold, woven threads entangled with poignant darkness
A heart made of white paper is covered in scrawling words, each letter glowing with the satisfaction of sentences written
Muscles act as extra parchments, coated in ink that slides over skin to form muttered incantations of verbal philosophies meant to rigor the soul back into shape
For escape is the pathway leading from all the pain that the world beats down upon the skin, rain pounding away and supposedly cleansing the skin from its inky chapters, effectively beating the will out of the so-called victim
Dreams captured by boxes without keys and locked into doors with windowless rooms, allowing for one to actually ponder the notion of forgotten memories of unrealistic worlds, of rabbits who could wa
I have left my voice bottled in glass rising upon the tide
My eyes now fall upon the lips of an enemy's pride
Shall I not dwell upon lingering mists caressing your fingertips
Just know that my powers do little to stop the tide coming for you
Drowning is not your worst enemy, my dear
Nor sharks, nor krakens, nor death at all.

Tis what he who thinks only for his own to kindness
Dare to contradict the words falling down from my lips?
I see how you watch me quietly at the stern, curious
Love does not allow for squandering, darling
Your mind must be amiss, he would tell you now

Indeed I can see betrayal imprinted upon your turquoise gems for eyes.

Since you do not love him, what is to fear?
Their words will wash away into the softest of whispers
If you just follow me into

Arms wide open; eyes unseeing as you look over the edge
The abyss beneath the mountain beckons to you; under is ice ledge
Whispers of pale faces in snowy vortexes surround your breath
Your long silver hair flies back off your head
With the howling winds, covered in shards of ice crystals past
Daring you to contradict their promises of your sweet demise
Tears drop from your dusty blue eyes to only crystallize
Your eyelids flutter shut and I watch your soul open up
Preparing for a leap that will land you into the deep
"My frozen fallen angel, why do you cry?
You are so loved by those who you stand by."
Turning to me with the cold in your bones, you quickly say, "But I am alone."
My smile breaks up the howling of the wind
As you feel a spark of something deep within
"You are not alone. You have me and will always for eternity."
You turn and gaze our upon the icy, barren la
