dreamcatcher, dreamcatcher catch me a dream

a pretty, shiny, lovely thing

a siren song that gleams

let it cover up the ugly parts

the mismatched cloth and clumsy stitches

shoved underneath the bed to hide

something so malicious

needlepoint, embroidery

the memory of broken seams

it's hard to breathe

please set me free

tangled and strangled

torn up and mangled

strung in a cobweb of suture thread

bleeding out and left for dead

dreamcatcher, dreamcatcher catch me a dream

make it the sweetest that I've ever seen

a patchwork of fabric drawn tight in a bow

distract everyone from the nightmare below



Lovely sing song rhythm IzALovelyMess. X
