Look Around Child



Move like the victim waiting to be captured

By the hunter from left to right

Want heaven to drink the blood of my ancestors

Moody nights

The heavy cloud of misery and loneliness is

Calling out the darkness and it is coming

The shadows of those who wish to harm me

Please appear, my knight in shining armor

The rebirth of my being

A new me has to appear

Can I finally stop running, if stuck  in a well full of sorrow?

Somebody, a sad lonely girl

Looking down at the floor

Bleeding from left to right

It is you I see in the mirror everyday?

        you are definitely not alone, and the feeling is mutual, I enjoy your works.

        Awesome right a powerful use of words that conjure powerful imagery - blood and hunters and darkness coming.

        Been there myself, questioned my mortality, confronted the monster - found him in the mirror!
