Razorblade ballet

Once upon a sadness, 
               The darkness came to play
           And the children of the blood 
                 Danced the razorblade ballet
           
          An orchestra of the lost 
               Played songs on the night
            While  the winds of misery
                Carried the pale tunes through  
                   Lonely skies
         And upon vunerable ears this
             Lullabye of hurt did fall
          As  steel and flesh unite
                      Ancient practice
                Spill the drops
                 Purge the blackness
          Scars are mine, pain divine
       When lights balance holds not the sway
               Only dancers know the price
           My razorblade ballet.
