Red Riding Hood

Red Riding Hood,
been so good;
Tired of wandering these woods.
Can’t you look?
It’s in the book;
How your sordid tale ends here for good.

You’re just a cold lost soul
that can’t tell what she’s looking for
Those that trust you
can’t say what they were hoping for
All alone,
Love, you don’t know what you’re getting involved for.

And the green trees of the forest
still shine with the light
that you no longer see.
But, the dark claimed all the rest
and left you with the night,
and me.

They were afraid
of the way
that her shadowed eyes never looked away
and the gaze
that was so cold
burned with a thousand secrets left untold.

You’re in pain once again
because you offered them your soul,
and it was all in vain,
and you feel lost and cold
Little riding hood
Tell me something nobody else knows..

And the green trees of the forest
have darkened all so suddenly
The dark claimed all the rest
and you can barely look at me.
Princess of red,
are you seriously telling me
that you really don’t see?

The Dark is just the Prequel.
