"So this is how liberty dies, with thunderous applause."

-Padme Amidala

Someone tried to decorate my skull. My future, smiling with innocence in her heart as she dissolves in her past,

but it's my present


Her song would have been enough to sustain both, had I

enough left to utter endearment, perhaps regret

but i seize before drawing breath

for my heart is now rust

and the dove flutters restlessly

trapped in my lungs with false hope of lifeblood, waiting for a train


but I already slashed the track to ruins.
