Purple heart in agonized amethyst~
Throbbing theatrics and a tongue undone…
Hooded cape of bloodied, bold scarlet~
Shielding a pale face of tears from the sun…
Muddied black boots and a dragging lace hem~
Stomping towards the beckoning battlefield…
The melancholy Maiden returns, to spite them,
Wielding her sharpened sword and painted shield…
Rich theatrics of the storming, old soul~
Full of pained vengeance, once peaceful sweetness…
She insists upon this tragic throne of retribution~
For the fairy-tale turned morbid, through carelessness.

Who are you? Are you a brave knight? A warrior brandishing your sword, ready for battle. Are you a dreamer? Away with the fairies, losing count of fireflies whilst searching for Neverland. A goth? Who feels right at home with the monsters hiding under the bed, who loves to dance a dervish with the devil on the stroke of midnight. Or perhaps you are a dragon-slayer? Or a soul snatcher? Basking in the heat of an eternal flame. Or maybe you’re a witch? Hiding deep in the woods, practicing dark arts beneath the light of a full moon.
