Heroes and Villains

Lorde’s music blasting in our ears,
We dance fearlessly and recklessly,
Like nothing in the world can stop us;
For a breathless moment, we are invincible.
Black curtains and silky skin,
The smell of smoke and sweet red wine.
Your kiss on my lips;
The memories that spin through my mind.
Singing along at the top of our lungs.
Dancing until we see a new dawn;
We are everything and nothing at all,
Heroes and villains in the strobe lights.
We are shards and dust and broken things,
We are love and desire and pure excitement.
We are lost in the maze of life,
Devestatingly happy and beautifully false.
Wandering aimlessly through the world,
Looking for our place in it–
Hoping we somehow end up on top,
Pushing and shoving them out of our way.
The sweet chains you bind me in;
The push and pull of the waves on the shore.
The moon shining full in our faces,
The laughter that echoes through the night.
Evil pressing for a place in our hearts,
Good fighting back like a raging lion.
We are everything and nothing at all,
Heroes and villains in the strobe lights.
