What scared me most

When they came for us, 

Is that they looked so… Normal.

I mean, they weren’t monstrous,

Or cruel-faced, just… People.
But they still took us,

Bound our hands and led away

From our Velvet refrain .

Harsh light, stale bread,

Await our ‘rebellious’ frames.
I held your hand, 

For as long, as I could.

I could, 

until they forced us apart.

They still took you.
The worst part, 

As they tore out my heart,

Was that awful, dreadful, Normalcy

Children, scared of the dark.
