I watched you change
From red to black
The look on your face
Like candle wax

The difference
In letting go
Or holding on


The colors contrast
I’m late for class
I watched you change
Like candle wax
And feeling your skin
Not seeing your eyes


Once more
You blinked away

The look on your face
And feeling your skin
And popping your veins
You puffing your chest

The colors contrast
You better think fast
You’ve watched me change
Like candle wax
And you’ve felt my skin
Not seeing my eyes
 


The author's comments:

Collectively, the piece is about bullying, but I wrote each line sort of individually, very free form. Heavily influenced by Deftones lyrics.
