footnotes baby. if you haven't, check the footnotes.

wrote this because i'm in debt and because i'm high off of TXT's comeback. 'Can't You See Me' is an absolute bop. expect more pieces based off of TXT and BTS songs (and add this one to the list of the ones that i've already written).

not exactly what 'of crowns and wings and horns' was but it's a nice fictional continuation i suppose. also, i know i skipped 'run away' but i added so many run away references in there it might as well fill that role too, although barely.

for a horned girl

in case you don't listen to kpop, i hope this piece was plenty enjoyable on its own :)

as pointed out, the link is broken. go search for it anyways, i urge you.

let fire engulf this magic island of ours

we were one, separate lives same hearts, secrets spilling like gasoline over hands
leave your fingerprints over my eyes so that i may never forget your name 
    'run away with me' 
you offered your hand to me a long time ago, lips streaked with a translucent grey
blindly, i reached for your embrace but
you weren't there, my oily palms grabbing a ghost 

where have you gone? i can't see you
please take me back to that 'magic island' where we laughed together 
before it burns to the ground, recall our rose colored past with vigor so that i can still see 'us' 
   'friends don't understand me anymore' 

your crown in flames, guilty as charged as i pour petrol over it 
please love me again so that i don't deflagrate in this desperate hatred 
please hold my hand so that i can still remember when we were once happy 
    'who's a liar?'

    beg for this to only be a painful dream but
    my dreams are far more agonizing than this so
    it must be reality 

    'can't you see me?!'
the wick drops, blazing with a furious flame 
this 'magic island' is no more, heterochromatic cat eyes merely sneer at the conflagration 
truly, whose hand was it that was holding that match?! 

    when we smiled together, do you remember? 
    'magic hour' is now over, we have nothing left
    no more 'forever together', the only thing i hold in my hands is ash
    'it's okay, don't be afraid' 

i stand in the midst of wreckage, wondering when it all went wrong 
i have watched our separation a million times yet i still can't see your face 
bring me to my knees, i can no longer see the sky
i pray to the ground, groveling 
    
    'save me'
