Syncopate your heartbeat
And feel the rain fall up,
Leave the skeletons in the closet
To dance for you another day.
Lead your ghosts by the hand
And dress them up in twilight regret,
Adorn them with stolen jewels
Made of the very fabric of the universe.
Sit down for a while and drink in the sorrow,
Stare at your reflection in the mirrors
In the neverending halls of Versailles
And watch the fireworks shed fire
Like roses shedding petals in the dusk
Of the last three days of summer.
Switch things up and
Fall victim to the laws of nature
And lay yourself to truly rest
For the first
