Thespian fascination dares to overtake me
Oppressing every facile notion in quiet synergy
Red is the shade to which my dreams fade
Tortured is the tint to whence desire is unmade
Undercover lover, eyes may forget why love
Repents in fragile oneirism, it’s all you ever have
Eternally bartering in an abundance of stitches
Delaying the pain reverent when your heart hitches.
