I ran with the beautiful man in makeup
being so afraid, the bombs getting closer
and closer towards someone I once loved.
The endless road stretched far into the
side of the hill, a bunker room filled with
background people and only one love.
Where am I in this blitz world? To be sure
I’ll have to sacrifice myself, leave the door
open and welcome the vampires.
But if that makeup man should lose his
precious creased smile, one day the wind
shall wipe away and it’ll vanish.
All my friends are there under the comfort
of the imminent doom. We found solace in
war and memories in darkness.
In this dream of reunion people were
missing. But they were replaced with
those I have chosen to be family.
This family is not aware of my addition to
to their home. Under one roof we thrive
and revel to continue deflecting the blitz.
So the school party leaves the simulation
for a more obscure living. Gods plan was
to make ours a more ingenuous life.
To make it painful he had to make it
painless. We mask and hold off the bombs
to free us so we can run smiling.
