The only woman who had escaped Bill’s
Grasp. When she left, he had become defunct.

Was unaware of their surroundings, but used
Their childhood to
Their full advantage. A ride

Of the moon on the horizon, or a lone stallion
Finding a new herd and
Feeling alive once more. Her eyes break
Away from his… onetwothreefourfive

How long I’ve waited for you to look at me like
You never wanted to lose me again? Gazing at me with your
Soul.” It was true, he was now a man that had developed from a boy.
He had grown, he was mature. “I’ll be your Mister”
He grins and thinks, ’til death.
