we stole the light from your eyes [ pushing it deep into the black soil ]
we took the breath from your lungs [ filling them with snow ]

[ we took you into realm of joy and blood
sweet forgetfullness and looming darkness
pressing your soul into the forest floor
mirages and colors
saccharine grins ]

we stole the bright smile from you lips
black roots and sharp branches
reaching deep into you
tearing their way to your heart
