A Rose, A Door

 

It’s a secret that outshines the day

Only when you’re close do you notice anything

If you want me to open the door

Take a piece of chalk draw a square in the floor

When it opens, you’ll see me no more

Another world awaits, maybe it’s better

 

Your sacred symbols have all turned to lead

They won’t help you swim in the Grey Between

Buy if you’re seeking monsters to slay

You’re sure to find some that won’t run away

 

Escape and shield your eyes from the day

In a world very different where the stars turn all wrong

 

The space between worlds is thin

Grin while you can all you bring is your skin

What protection can you offer me

From things that only hunger and creep in the caves

And if you ever see the Rose

I don’t suppose you could ever look away

 

‘Cause it’s a secret that outshines the day

Only when you’re close do you notice anything

If you want me to open the door

Take a piece of chalk draw a square in the floor

When it opens, you’ll see me no more

Another world awaits, maybe it’s better
