 little did i know then how far those chains would stretch. 

circumstance deals the cards. still, we're the ones who play them. 

a stranger with a crooked grin. a pirate on a sinking ship.

a lonely child desperate for a way inside the world. a predator with broken claws. starving for a victim.

an architect overcome with walls. a thief. feverishly picking every lock. 

fate decided. you didn't listen.

a bird without feathers. suffocating on the memory of flight. a magician without his wand. 

stumbling through the deepening mire of his expiring illusions. 

we fell in love in the middle of the ocean..

but only one of us drowned in it.
