Open the lid, and let those sweet, sweet voices command you. Fade away as the music plays. Perfectly alright, perhaps. Can you overcome it? Can you wake up from this nightmarish dream?

It was gorgeous. A beautiful, jewel-encrusted box that played the prettiest melody when it was opened. Such an innocent looking box with a wonderful sound and a magical ability. Open it, and see the most vivid memories. Things in your past that have never happened. Bright illusions so realistic yet surreal you can't tell if they really happened. Perhaps they did, at one point. But it was never to you.
A dream appears before your eyes from the splendid masterpiece, drawing you further in towards the mystery of fake memories. The extensive collection it brought was amazing, and the familiarity it brings chips away the coming time as you watch the life you never lived. You wished you lived it.
The brilliance it carries within its mirrored walls traps you and binds you, though you wouldn't dare try to escape. You continue to immerse yourself in the past, ignoring the present and shutting out the future. The sparkle that had been there was slowly disappearing as you're consumed by the beautiful music box's dreams. They captivated you.
The stunning melody gradually faded into a hollow clanging sound left resonating in your head as the lid slowly leaned forward, snapping shut. You blink, seeing your dusty surroundings. Your wrinkled hands flex, and you cringe as your skin stretches painfully over your brittle bones. Years have gone by. You have missed your life within that box.
That sweet, demonic device had let you live within a dazzling recurring dream and without thinking, you did. It was wonderful. You wished you hadn't. Oh how you longed for everything you missed.
So come, open the box and let the music play. Come, and let the lovely dream play. That peaceful, poisonous song will lull you to sleep. The sleep of chained eternity.
