Solivagant (The Unpublished Lyrics Of Zujenia)
« on: December 04, 2019, 12:05:39 AM »

Inside the contents of a little black book, with a withered spine, and  a multitude of tsukia and dirt stained pages, are the writings of the female, Half Vistani Bard who Goes by the name Of Zujenia.

We know this to be true, by the signature left on the first page of this little  black book, for which she signed so boldly:

One the second page, denotes a recent entry. Her hand writing is as beautiful as it was messy, perhaps an inkling to her personality as well.

Her first song was simply titled:


He's been a wanderin' From The Moment He found his feet.
and cursin' at the gods, since he learned to speak

For he's been chastised,
and Baptized, and nothing makes him clean,
No, nothing makes him free....

He's been a drinkin, from the moment he felt weak
For he knows, oh he knows, he's already twelve feet deep

He's been chastized,
and Baptised, yet nothing makes him clean
No, Nothing sets him free...

And he cries, oh he cries, how he cries out to me,
"When I look in the Mirror, there's a stranger, in front of me,
Oh Lord, Oh Lord, Send those angles unto me."
For he's  been drowning, and nothing,
Nothing makes him clean...

He's been chastised, and Baptized
and nothing makes him clean,
Lord, Oh Lord, when are you
to set him  free?

Dedicated, To Victor.

On the third page of this little black book, has several scribbles, and words written over one other until she got to her final desired result. It was obviously important to her that her diction was handcrafted perfectly.

This Song, She Titled after much  consideration:



She is a dancer, how she taunts the flames
Spinning and turning, collecting the male gaze
I wish I could save her, But I fear it's far too late
As she dances, dances, dances  among  the flames.

She is a thief, how she steals their hearts,
She is an actress, and damn she plays the part,
I wish I could save her, but I know it's all too late
As she dances, dances, dances among the flames.

She is a woman, how she bears her pain,
And she is a dancer, dancing through the flames
I wish I could save her, But I know it's all too late

For She's consumed, Consumed, Consumed by the flames.

And I, was too late.

On the fourth page of this little black book with a small, purposeful stain of Spirits in the upper left corner of the page. The lyrics resting under it quite delicately.




We were talking till the Late A.M
He asked me what's a drink between friends?
As He filled my cup right to the brim,
Then Something took a hold of me...

We were laughing till the late A.M
And I fit so perfectly in his hands,
So what's some drinks between friends?
Then  something took a hold of me..

We were talking till the late A.M
And he said what's a night between two friends?
He led me up the stairs of the Inn,
And then he took a hold of me.

Then I left his side, In the Late A.M
And I looked over my shoulder at my friend,
I want to share his drink again,
and let him take a hold over me..

On the fifth page, of this little black book is an ornate drawing of a compass, the lyrics of Zujenia are scribbled below. There are many edits along the margin of this page, indicating that it took her quite some time to find the exact words she wished to say.



The day we departed, he left knives in my sides
and when I walked away, there gathered tears in my eyes
and if that wasn't enough, he had the nerve to say to me

"Tell everyone, what you think you see in me.
Tell them I'm the monster, that can't be saved.
Tell them that it's hopeless, to try and call my name.
Tell them that you ran, and you haven't seen me in days.."

I'll tell them, what I know to be true,
if they ever come, asking about you
I'll tell them that you went running, and I went running after you.

Oh yes, we both went running...

Just in different directions.


When I walked away, I never faced regret.
Because the man I loved, wasn't the man that I left.
And if that wasn't enough, he had the nerve to say to me..

"Tell everyone, all the things that you told me,
Tell them that I'm the one, the one that clipped your wings.
Tell them you wasted, all your youth away.
Tell them that you haven't.. seen me in days."

I'll tell them what I know, I know to be true
and if they ever come, asking about you.
I'll tell them that I ran, ran after you.

Oh yes, we both went running..
but in different directions..

[On the sixth page of this little black book, would be a piece of green velvet cloth, pinned to the topped of this page, a set of lyrics following]





There once was a wall of glass, that stood in awe to see,
and such a weary traveler, did that one wall bring,
But something seemed to shatter, and the glass came down,
and now , only  in simple fragments this wall can be found.


In these glass fragments, I don't know what I am seeing.
These  cracks in the glass, frame my sense of believing.
I use to be so confident, and carefree,
but  now there's a stranger, and she's glaring, straight at me.


The paint on my face, is getting duller, in the color,
The addictions that I had, I just keep adding, another.
The Lies that I tell, are getting bigger than myself,
and I'm too prideful, to dare and  ask for help.

In these glass fragments, I don't know what I am seeing.
These  cracks in the glass, frame my sense of believing.
I use to be so confident, and carefree,
but now there's a stranger, and she's glaring, straight at me.

The doubt in my mind, is piercing like an arrow,
the words that they said, ring true like a sparrow,
The light that they once shined, now only seems to blind me,
and the friends that I had, now only look to defy me...

In these glass fragments, I don't know what I am seeing.
These  cracks in the glass, frame my sense of believing.
I use to be so confident, and carefree,
but now  there's a stranger, and she's glaring, straight at me.
