The Cracked FacadeA Poem by Lumière Déclinante
For L. With all my love.
Isolated your heart and muffled your cries
But I've finally found the deceit in your eyes
You live off the "what ifs" you made in your past
And fill up your future with lies you held last
Why is a raven like a writing desk?
For the same reason your life is a mess/
The bucket is full but the brim's holding strong
Now go back to your corner and fight with your wrongs.
The light, it fades
With passing days
The moon will take all you've known...
How tender your skin is made of thinnest lace
If I trace your veins they'll lead back to one place
The strings of your heart are made of finest gold
The music plays stories that you've never told.
Alice, oh Alice, why don't you drink me.
I'll make you smaller than I'm able to see
The size of my thumb and then you'll shrink no more
You've forgotten the key, you won't get through the door
Just follow me
Leave your mind be
We won't stop till you've grown...

AboutHi :) My real name is Anna, an Irish person would hardly have the name Lumière Déclinante. In my defence, it seemed like a good idea at the time. I sort of do that a lot. Start things t.. more..
