OpenYou weren't born in the desert, but you died there.Open by the-queen-of-youth
It was your favorite place, the way you could run for hours and never reach a road, the way you were exposed to the sun and the sky—you could never keep a secret in the desert, it felt like it was such an honest and open place, there was nowhere to hide anything.
So you had to be like it, and you told the dry and dusty ground any and all remaining secrets that might have been hidden deep, wedged between your ribs and poking you every time you took a step. You told it everything, and you knew it was listening.
That was your first visit, and you don't know how many endless days you spent just taking it in, finding places to climb and survey your lonely kingdom, sitting in places where the ground was stained red and wondering what happened.
It was the one place where you didn't feel that dull little ache in your heart, that ache that pulled tears from your eyes at every beautiful place you came across. That ache that told you this
Lost BoyHe’s a lost boy and she doesn’t know how much longer she can pretend to love him.Lost Boy by the-queen-of-youth
Every part of him needs her, she feels like water after walking through a desert for days. She is his relief.
He could have held the world in his hands, but he chose to hold her instead.
She’s growing up much faster than she’d like, and he’s not the mystery he used to be. She used to hang on his every word, his touch was her drug—his drug was called Fairydust and she liked it just fine too—
But she’s older now.
She used to clap her hands to his beat every night because she believed in him, believed he would hit it big and take her on trips to Neverland every weekend. But his band broke up in a frenzy of thrown guitars and violent hexes.
So now she works at their local fast food place every night, and he comes in and she gives him free shakes even though she could get fired for it.
The way he calls her ‘darling’ just ain’t the same anymore.
ZiaGo, go, goddess, shake those hips, shake it ‘n scream—Zia by the-queen-of-youth
you’re preachin’ to a sold-out choir now, love
dance, dance, diamond, step out, step and slide—
all the boys had better beware now
sex, sex, sugar, make us all moan, make us moan—
sexy and you know it, girl
don’t let anything stop you
it’s rock and roll, baby
SongbirdCaged bird, caged bird, won’t you sing me a song? Sing to me with that voice that’s the only one you know, the voice that’s kept you company through your lonely years.Songbird by the-queen-of-youth
Where’d you learn to sing, love, how did you do it? Tell me, what did it; was it the day you decided to match your voice to an old song, or the night you got so lonely you let everything come out of your mouth?
Smart girl, you lonely genius girl, how did you learn to read all by yourself? Did you imagine a father’s arms around you, warming you and helping you along?
Tell me everything, my bird, tell me every story you’ve ever read, everything your cold protector ever did to you. I’m your prince, skylark, come to take you away from this tower. I know we’ve only just met, but you can trust me.
Come to protect you, come to make sure you never fall out of the sky like the angel you are.
All I need is your heavenly presence, my bluebird, your voice will keep me warm
SwirlsThe ice seeps through the bedSwirls by FallingAsleepTonight
as dust dances a dust-dance
in the early night, pressing
their little faces against my window
where fingerprints have been.
Little gylphs of oil
that show where I have been.
