little things that you don't know
little secrets that would turn you away
trapped in cold, black glaciers
and hidden behind a 'pure' smile

she's crystalline, ice, and striking
she freezes the air you're exhaling,
the oxygen you're breathing
the body of yours moving

her eyes are dark but hair is darker
every strand pulls you closer
wraps you tighter and tighter
slowing your blood flow more…

she never says a word
but her eyes bore right through you
as if you were transparent
yet with someone so opaque…

now you're face to face with her alone
there's no way out of this
somehow you let yourself fall with her
in this darkened, dusty room

steam rises from the background
her nails grow crimson red
words written on charcoaled walls
black laces begin to fall…

her posters all portray a death
a poisonous apple, her prize
her skin whiter than the purest milk
your fate being served on a tray…

little things that you don't know
little secrets that would turn you away
she had kept them so well hidden
and you became her prey.
