Shadows

Alice commits suicide 
Can't shake the shadow 
She runs one way 
Hearts another 

Kings sit pretty with crowns 
They watch her fall 
It only matters if she's on her knees 
As she band aids the loss of being incomplete 

There's an ace missing from my deck 
There's a storm over head 

Nothing can stop her 
From un becoming what they want her to be 


She looks past the shadow 
Like Peter Pan 
A fairy tale can't save her 

I sit here between words and periods 
In this world alone 
Lost 
Says , Alice 

Searching through every window
