I look at you and see
hooks, claws, latching
(oh, you desperate soul, why are you reaching
for mine? can't you see?
i've been here all along)
I watch you and wonder
(why is life so cruel? i want to know,
why can't i just take you away?)
did you know?
your soul's spilling from your eyes;
righteous rain from the torn sky...
my hands reach out
but in my embrace
i feel hollow bones and tears
and i repeat
until i'm whispering, "mirror, mirror,
save the fairest of them all."
when i close my eyes
it feels as if i'm clutching
i imagine that you've flown away.
