Asleeping on the floorboards, a-dreaming and imagining that everything is good. But when you wake up screaming surrounded by your brothers you know you're in a dead place where everything is wooden.


Peter, what'd you leave me here? A thimbleful of bitter tears. God, I miss your shadow so, it showed me things no girl should ever know. Remember, you taught me to fly? Filled up my heart with startled skies. I can't tell which star was ours and I'm all out of happy thoughts. Never land never had a chance. What of the Lost Boys without your shade? They grew up, blew out their brains. Only I saw the change in their eyes as they fell apart just like the Lord of the Flies... Peter, what'd you leave me here?
