Woman of clouded glass
Bricks and boards can’t keep you out
Standing on the precipice
A wasteland, in white.
Falling along the edge
The jagged mist comes screaming
Inside outside inside
Where are the trees?
Wonder why they flit within the shadows;
What stains these boards
Where I walk a million miles?
The darkness on the stairs to Hell
Never hides the monsters
Never hides our intentions
Never keeps its promises.
She speaks wisdom; Listen well.
