My mother cooked up spells upon our kitchen hearth
Sweet smells they taunted me
Sung a sirens song upon the sugary draft
I took a spell that was not mine
ran from her ginger bread house
hid in my thorny castle
A witches curse upon my mouth
The witch fought against the current
Her spell a riptide sea
I sat and listened at her door
dark shadows begins to linger in her breath
Harsh whispers rolled in and out on uneven tides
It rasped against the broken vessel
Ebbed away and died
My mothers life was forfeit, a price I felt to high
I cried a world of tears for her
But pushed the guilt aside
I trapped those dark emotions
I kept them in a wooden shell
Locked and trapped they festered
Brewed hatred in my heart.
My father sent for a governess to curb my reckless acts
Someone who could teach me
and find the light within the dark
When they came emotions erupted
Clashed upon the hearth
The place beside my father filled by another
Twisted sisters take my part
