sit in the moonlight and sew the torn world together again

Dripping from your mouth like poison,
Seeping from the open wounds like gold. 
shattered glass on the floor, like ice. 
bloody knuckles, twisted limbs. 

Leaving behind empty ghosts every time you walk away,
come dance with me under the dusty streetlights,
come dance with me in the dead of night. 
You smell like death and jealousy,
perhaps you should come to dance with me
so the smell wears away,
perhaps you should cover that smell with perfume
so no one can smell what you really are. 

Crawl for the light, 
before the darkness is too thick to escape,
or perhaps you want to stay?
Perhaps the darkness is the only thing that keeps you alive?
Perhaps you want to drown in darkness?
Is that what it is?

Look at this mess that you and I have created,
shall we sit in the moonlight and sew the torn world together again?
Shall we walk through the rainstorms collecting your tears?

We are all just puppets, 
hanging limply from our strings,
swaying softly in the midnight breeze.

We are all just painters,
trying to paint some color 
into our empty souls,
but it only fades away,
before we can even finish. 

What is it that you want?
The lies dripping from your mouth like poison,
we walk through the darkness,
we walk away through the rainstorms,
holding ragged puppets,
and paintbrushes. 
What is it that you want? 






 
Oh goodness, gracious. Please forgive me, I did not mean to write something that sounded so dark. (Please don't take this down admin, I will edit It if you want)

    hey Zoe! I submitted another review for your draft 4. And uh, that review was pretty harsh *chews on lip* but, I hope it will help. As always, they're only suggestions, and you can choose to ignore if you want :) OH, and I just want to say, that I was really nit-picking on your review so yeah. I just want to apologize beforehand, so I'm sorry for being tough :\

    I remember a while ago when you first followed me, you had a different profile picture then, I think a script of writing or something? Anyways, you've been such a big support to me and I am so thankful to have met you in my WtW journey. Recently I hit a milestone of 105 followers, and knowing that you've been supporting me all along is just enough to make me smile. You've given me so much love and appreciation, that I hope that I can return the favor with this. To you, it might just be a single click of a button, but gosh that single click means everything to me and I am so grateful to have you as a follower of mine. Truly, thank you.
    (Also, I'm doing a dust jacket, so if you have any questions, send them my way!)

    The vibe from this reminds me of a toxic relationship in a way. And the portrayal of that is so rich in imagery and so very vivid. There's pain in this piece and there's hurt, but there's a wanting to work it out as well. As if no matter what happens, they'll always be able to fix it again in the future, that they'll always find themselves healing again. There's so much to this piece, from the meaning to the imagery to the way it is written. And I love how you took it, so many ways of interpretation and so many more ways to feel it come to life.

    I know you didn't mean to make this dark, but that tone really fits in this case. Great job!

    OoO It's so powerful! You know that saying that beauty and ugliness coexist. This piece really puts that saying into motion. The imagery is brilliant. I almost want this to be a song so it can be danced to. <3
