There’s nothing left to lose,
He takes a shot into the dark.
“I’ll close my eyes, wind up tight,
I bet I hit your heart.”
Blacks and whites get lost to foster greys within her trance,
The hairs along her neck stand up to match their phantom dance.
Her shrieking instincts tell her not to move.
The Shadow Man has stepped into the room.
From trembling hands, she forms an angry fist,
And tells him once again, the way it is:
“To survive the strain you put me through, losing the person I thought I knew,
And knowing the promise you made to me,
It wasn’t real, it was never true…I can’t believe in things like you.”.
She screams into a sigh.
With leathery wings, he wraps her tight
“Tonight, I change your mind.”
