I found myself in a dark empty room,
-The doors sealed and the curtains drawn-
trembling in the corner with a broken bulb,
That was casting shadows on the wall.

Each of the windows had their own face,
through the wooden boards they’d speak.
Each one had warned her not to stay,
And made it so that she couldn’t leave.

Every single night was a restless night,
For the figures lurking in the gloom.
Some of the floor tiles would awake,
And silently creep across the room.

For her this had become too much,
She needed someone with whom to talk.
Her and I had become really close,
By means of a mirror on the wall.

While she helped me reconcile with myself,
I helped her recover from her mental fall.
So she honored me with a broken light,
That was casting shadows on the wall.

Oh, I get it now, the whole Smeagol thing happening...but my question still stands, though in different form:  How are you gonna manage to do that?

Well, like I said, I'm a literal person, and if you try to say something that means virtually nothing, then I will try my best to make it mean something.

if you want to explain the method to your madness then I could say all i did was pick words at random that i knew you wouldnt be able to understand. i said i bet you couldnt translate it. that didnt mean try and see, it mean you couldnt translate it. its funny how you ignore what i say when i mean it, but when i dont mean it you pay attention to it.

In that case, that wasn't fair, and you should actually try scrambling something I can understand.
