Lurking in the Mist
© 2008 Guy Donges

Well, she's got a voice.
Why doesn't she use it?
What is it, a secret or something?
I mean, with that kind of opportunity...
Ya know?

Lady
Focus Fading
fearing flaming
from the fire and fury
finding light
Light just barely
fading flicker
falling
feisty female
feeling ever fairly strong!

Confused and scared
and all alone
tried going home
but meanwhile
Lurking in the mist
Hiding in the shadows
running from behind
no changing destiny
Ah, exchanging life for freedom
caught in the act
Why can't they let her be?
A victimless crime -
don't bother hunting -
anyway,

softly
springing
sweetly singing
sleekly
slinking over slime
descending into hell.
Solid suffering
such a strange sensation
since the thoughts
had simply said it's going well.

Confused and scared
and all alone
tried going home
but meanwhile
Lurking in the mist
Hiding in the shadows
running from behind
no changing destiny
Ah, exchanging life for freedom
caught in the act
but nothing there to see
A victimless crime -
don't bother hunting -
anyway
