From the recording Falling
Music & Lyrics by Rändi Fay
Dragonfly whose iridescent
Armor hides her inner essence
Quick maneuvers, feints and flights
Evasive tactics, flickering lights.
Crystal tears drop from her eyes
Shatter as they fall on lies
Shards that shimmer, pierce the cold
All that glitters is not gold
Smallness is your fortress:
Why run when you can hide?
Smallness is your source of strength:
No room for love denied.
Your courage is compacted
hardened by the years
a diamond whose facets shine
through a veil of crystal tears.
Promises like fairy dust
Just blow away before they rust
A whisper of those unheard cries
that dissipate in alibis…
Where’s the Beauty in the ashes?
Ruby lips and ebony lashes
Give the bottle one more spin,
There’s still a chance that you might win…
Smallness is your victory
Stay small enough so they won’t see
What’s the price of secrets kept?
Crystal tears are all she wept.
