Eeek. Experiment. :/


Entice A Pretty Fool

She wears a gown of grace
Her eyes are strung like jewels
Could that crooked smile
Simply mask a pretty fool

She walks with the faintest skip
As if to show her charm
Her voice is marked with fallacy
As is the conscience on her arm

She sings in off-key laughter
As if to entice the blind
The blind being I --
Tied with a moral bind

She is merely a faint echo, just
Another shadow on the wall
Canít see past that barrier
For I am reluctant to fall

Into the chasm of her speech
As I fight my every being
I need to shut my eyes
Before I can start seeing

Her wistful sense of righteousness
Is no longer what I seek
Sheís smothered in radiance
For which I label her a freak

I canít control these feelings
That strain from deep inside
Lead weight of uncertainty
Presses down upon my mind

Her beauty is a sacrifice
I will just have to make
As I drown in my decision
Solitude is a risk I must take

She wears her beauty carefully
Her every word goes by rule
She goes left, I go right
Maybe Iím the pretty fool?

Oh my gosh... Even when you experiment you write something really good.. I'm jealous of your talent.

-Zach

When I see your smile, and I know itís not for me, thatís when Iíll miss you.
