I shake, I hide, I stammer
I strut, I sway, I falter
The dark calls me
Like a siren song my heart is drawn
I am drowning underneath all the masks
Reaching for a cool breath of air on my skin
“Who am I?” I cry
And the deep echoes
The sounds rolling till I am under
Every face is me, I am every side
The black whispers
It’s music drifting
Pulling me, luring me
Who am I?
Who do I have to be?
An unbroken step and I am over the edge
Embracing the shadows where light fades
Finally I see my reflection and it’s not pretty
And as the black swan swallows me whole
I wonder for a moment, “If I had been free, who would I be”
I wonder who am I?
