Solidarity in Scarlet Shadows

Waltzing along to a hidden crescendo, 

I twirl through scarlet satin shadows

They cloak my porcelain skin, 

Donning me in a mask of my own making

I reside in a clandestine corner 

Of a cruel, beautiful world, 

Untold stories swirling through my soul

Like an unstoppable storm

Always the picture of composure, 

While underneath, a lonely smile crumbles

Forever, I dance in sync

With this masquerade of solidarity
