Dancer in the Dark – Luka Megurine

Spiderweb by Iris_Cam

I keep on fighting against God, in such a dirty, cruel place

Languishing, in the cramped cell.

My left arm has been blown off, and my wings have been teared off

She has no hope of escape, with her dreams, her wings, ripped off.

I keep on fighting against God, in such a dirty, cruel place

The LEP opposed her.

They will never let her out.

My right arm is full of scars, and I’ve devoted everything

She devoted years and years of brilliant life, plotting.

They have snatched it away, away from her grasp.

What am I still doing here in this dying world? Why am I in a place of evil and darkness?

She smiles as her past self, now in the future, fingers a large kitchen knife.

The pain in my arm from this irrational wound. It’s a constant painful reminder of my own anguish

She remembers her past self raising the knife.

The simple thought of losing everything I have, it’s tearing apart the rest of my emotions

She was about to feel sorry, when she remembered how Holly and the Mud Boy had ripped her bright future apart.

I keep on asking questions again and again, the kind that I’ve devoted through repetition

She asks herself for the reason why.

Why are they so devoted?

Why do they want to stop her from building a world in her image?

I keep on fighting against God, in such a dirty, cruel place

The hypocrite, Holly.

Wasn’t she subjected to all the sexist crap in the Academy, just like Opal?

My left arm has been blown off, and my wings have been teared off

Yet, Holly had helped Fowl set his web.

His trap.

She is now the trapped butterfly.

I keep on fighting against God, in such a dirty, cruel place

Never to fly again.

To be devoured by the LEP.

My right arm is full of scars, and I’ve devoted everything

She  had enough of losing.

To a male.

 

I’m fighting in this world that’s on the edge of death, but why does it have to be me losing it all?

Was a non-sexist world so bad?

I can feel the throbbing from my wound in my heart. It’s a constant painful reminder of my own downfall

The pain from her past defeats, anger at Foaly, at Fowl, comes pouring out.

Through the gleaming blade.

Abandoned with just my thoughts I can remember, I feel like everything in me is near it’s end

Holly will no longer wreck her plans.

Who knew that simple plans worked, as well?

I keep on asking questions again and again, the kind that I destroyed through repetition

A thought flitted through her past self’s mind.

Who next?

 

I keep on fighting against God, in such a dirty, cruel place

Opal feels her past self hesitate.

My left arm has been blown off, and my wings have been teared off

The guilt is taking its toll.

I keep on fighting against God, in such a dirty, cruel place

This time, the knife is fueled by hatred at herself.

My right arm is full of scars, and I’ve devoted everything

She disintegrates just as she opens her mouth to scream.

  1. Woah.
    I like it.
    And for once, I am replying first to something.

    I like Opal. I really do. And I believe she was mistreated as a child. So this is very meaningful to me.

    I didn’t see any mistakes. Keep writing, please. We need writers like you.

  2. Sniffle, sniffle, sniffle…

    I suppose I have to say something constructive… *sniffle, dries tears, sucks lollipop*

    I didn’t see any spelling mistakes, or grammar mistakes, so this is good. I really like this. I like the story.

    Sniffle, sniffle, sniffle…

    Good… sniffle… job. Sniffle. *cries*
