She straddles the line between light and dark. Angels call to her in the light of day Fly with us and we’ll part the way We’ll show you the path of innocence Bright eyes reminisce to childhood, a fleeting flash of happiness. Like reprimanding a child, the divine beseech the girl To offer herself selflessly, to the light, to the bright. Demons lurk on the other side Their devilish grins spread far and wide. They chant in whispers come play with us, come play with us Heart beats faster as the excitement builds A stranger spots this and her dark nature he gilds. Like candy to a child, the predator offers to the prey Promises of companionship, of strength If only she would succumb to his bite, to the night. The woman’s reply, Do not tell me my nature; I exist in shades of gray I forge my own path. I make my own way And your boxes are starting to bore me.
