ACT I: SCENE 4: TRAMPLED

And I saw feathers at your seat.
Cornerstones shattered at your feet.
By GOD all the things you said were lies.
And I saw kingdoms of your sighs.

You wear a pointy hat inside.
And I saw all the jewels you hide.
Your favorites: broken hearts and empty cups I try but just can't fill.

And still leading.
And still bleeding.
And still crumbling at your gates.

I've been watching.
I've been wanting.
I've been falling, and breaking, and bleeding, and crying.
And trying to forget again.
Trying to forget amends.
Trying just to feel like theres a reason im stuck here.

I'm trampled and spit on.

I've failed and theres no going back.
I call you when my friday's black.
Forbidden fruit is like your touch.
Your crown is straining me too much.

Your highness, your wills mine to serve.
Your highness getting on my nerves.
"Let's play now." Puzzles on the floor.
It's not like you to want much more.

You're still whining.
You're still sobbing.
You're still scratching at my ears.

The pain seeps in.
The pain deepens.
The pains growing and glowing. I'm groaping and struggling.
And trying to forget again.
Trying to forget amends.
Trying just to feel like theres a reason im stuck here.

I'm trampled and spit on.

about

The Ugly Facade Texas

We live our lives in boxes, with little glowing screens. We fill our blood with toxins, so we can deal with things. And sometimes, more than often, the bitter masks the taste. The fruitless failed reflection: what if it's all a waste?
