Y'know, I really hope I can pull off the cool mysterious deep writer persona. That'd be sick.

I got the first stanza stuck in my head and then used a line I've been saving and here it all is. I like paying with imagery.

They have silver tongues and golden lies,
I can't stop staring into their serpent eyes.
I know that they feed me untruths, that I am a pawn in this dirty game.
But...
I cannot help but love the song they sing.
I will not fall for this trap.
But I will listen, and listen, until the canary cries. 


Tell me something that will make me not so afraid of the dark. 
Something that will spark 
Within me
The courage to stop all of this.
To stop the serpents from approaching me and trying to use and manipulate me.
I no longer wish to be a person of interest.

I want the reputation.
I want to be revered. 
The serpents will know to never bother me again.
They will choke on their gold and silver,
and I will keep all my rubies. 

I will be the singing canary and spread my wings.
I will fly far away
And it will be the perfect happily ever after.
