You never thought
I meant to put a bullet in your head,
But I stuck a dagger
Into your sweet heart,
You let yourself think I wanted to kill you
Because I already had inside,
When the blade was removed
The blood gushed forth;
But I stopped it quickly.
I am getting to work;
Sewing, sewing, sewing,
I feel no remorse;
It only for the babe I am owed,
Sewing up your heat,
But first I tuck them in
To a never ending sleep
Beneath the tree I once planted
It was you not me.
'Go to your father, you lie with him, not me.'
I kiss them all
Sweet angel baby's
My girl almost literally,
Maybe I'm like Father McKenzey
Wiping the dirt from his hands as he walks from the grave;
No one was saved,
No one was saved,
No one was saved,
The last few stitches
You are buried beneath the tree
No one was saved
I think he cares,
I think he loves
But he doesn't enough,
Hurts of mine own
Are taken out on you
By both of us,
Though we swore as children never to do that.
Isn't it it funny?
I've grown hard to your tears
I would lie if I said I loved you
Right now anyway
You pass me by without glance,
Not one I love you
Or praise of my face,
No...No..It's them
Only with them may I ever love you
But like Cronus you swallowed them whole,
I see her emerge
From the frozen snow
That is now your kundalini
"Please don't leave me mommy," she hollers,
'I am scared.'
I kiss her head
I tuck her back into her coffin bed,
I tell her the story of Rapunzel,
So that she may dream endlessly of a fairy tail.
And now I leave
They are fast asleep in the earth,
I sew back your heart
And leave in despondent defeat

Amazing work, WhiteWitch.
You move and process imagery so well.

I recognized a few lines that hint at a song.
Nice choice, too.

(music) Eleanor Rigby (The Beatles) [2:16]
