My Little One

My Little One

A Poem by DarkShines

Bioshock themed poem, an answer to Rainbow Breath's 'Symbiotic [Eyes Under Ebony]


Down below

Deep beneath

The dark and seductive sea

Life's been taken

Taken away from me

Given away to monstrosity

My voice is no longer

The sound I once knew

Like a sighing foghorn

Bent and out of tune

Fixing the leaks

Plugging the holes

But no chance to save these godforsaken souls

Wearing masks to hide

Hide the pain

Destroyed their bodies without any shame

All for the vanity

Chance to be strong

With fire at their fingertips

How could life go so wrong?

But she sees past all of this

She knows not of the wicked men

That haunt these halls

She dances down the corridor

Draining the forgotten

Not really understanding what for

My little one

So fragile and sweet

She skips and sings of angels

Never knowing the death at her feet

Calls me Mr. Bubbles

She's mine to protect

Mine to watch over

A bond born of pure torture

I can't question the need

But even if I could

I could never be freed

Condition calls on me

To be the one she needs

To help gather the leftovers

Escort her on her morbid deeds

And as much as I want to be free

I am forced to make her see

That she would always have a protector

Her Big Daddy

Somewhere beyond the sea

Somewhere waiting for me

My life remembers

Remembers what I came to be

And heartbroken about what I came to lose
