A Walk in The Dark (Act II)

Peeling bark and newborn cries

Concealed in the shame of her lies

Screams

Far off the wolves howl high

Into the moon new life nigh

Bloody

Messes of her life she still tries

To no avail fails, a roll of the die

Murder

Hands hold cold corpses twin lives

Sink deeper together in two dive

Drowning

Tears split water sharper than knives

Cut her cheeks open but still alive

Out

Gills form she swims with the tides

The other life swims within inside

Sound

I'm just here. Until I'm not.
