Fly Away

Fly away from this carnival of fools
The glitter has now withered
As ghost dust on the floor
Pierrot is broken-hearted
Columbine will come no more
So fly away

Fly away from this false and gaudy fair
In the dirt a promise broken
Reminds what you came here for
A momentary exhilaration
Is but a trick and nothing more
So fly away

Fly away to something shining in the sky
All this cheap skate misdirection
Is what you now must most abhor
Life’s not a carnival excursion
But a battle tooth and claw
So fly away

About helenvalentina

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.
