Half victim, half accomplice, like everyone
She hypnotized the semi-worlds by her fairy dresses. She tempted those worlds with her red lips. She didn’t smile at all, but everyone – was looking for that smile in her lifeless eyes. So charming doll – she had a golden hair and so weird frosted eyelashes… And she had so etheric soul. But, has someone ever seen the doll soul? Has someone ever known what the doll soul looked like? Soul – with red lips and golden eyelashes which were sparkling somewhere – where the worlds didn’t shine anymore. There was no cold; there was neither sun, nor moon – only some savage spiders and stony shadows which could be broken by only smell. Only savage and dark silhouettes playing with eternity scattering precious sand – everywhere. There was only music – it was crashed, trembling and crying. There was her soul. But everyone saw – only her lips. Red. Everyone noticed only her guilt. Only some dollish fault for that semi-world emptiness, which confused the whole universe by its mute vibrations of fear and infirmity.
She played with those wild spiders. She was absorbed by brutal sounds of their emptiness. And when those creatures touched her by their black fingers – her eyelashes became black. She was crying glass tears. And those tears were turned into the desolate music confusing the whole world by very ancient rhythms. Her dreams were captivated by that hypnotic music. That painful music confused her eyes and all of them, imprudent – were disappearing in her eyes. And then a lot of lilac flowers appeared around her mute body. Her pale body was pregnant being filled with the silence of various worlds which were breaking loose. Those still half-dead shadows so wanted to touch their eternal mother – she had black eyelashes and she was dressed in black (not fairy at all). Half accomplice, half victim – among her vicious monsters. Her soul has been blown up by black birds with very sharp wings. And those wings hurt everyone who wants to touch her. And she had no power above those black wings of her virgin soul, revealed in timeless – adult scars and the stony memories. So, she was – only running away. Forever – she was running away from them. This was her everlasting escape to nowhere.
A wild silence of the semi-worlds – was trembling because of her stony pain. But the ancient ghosts were very indifferent, because their stony wounds didn’t hurt. And when those horrible creatures came back to life – some mute silence was crying, when they started their timeless oblivion orgy. They said – don’t look at her smile, don’t let her smile fool, don’t let her eyes confuse – cause red lips have a filthy price – cause red lips always lie. But, could someone be able to abstain? She asked – she warned of that filthy price of red colour. But, no one heard her words. She had red lips and black eyes – when those ancient spiders – were raging in their primeval dance moving to the music of her soul covered with wounds. She had no tears any more – only mad and savage sounds of her dollish heart – were confusing the semi-worlds by her pain. That music hurt the whole world, whispering a horrible story about red lips and empty paradise of the semi-worlds, where she was – forever. But, could someone be able to hold back himself? And, whose was that filthy price? Half victim, half accomplice – like everyone.
