Mimi Barks – Banshee

Today’s track of the day comes from Mimi Barks with single Banshee!

Mimi Barks has shared the awesome single Banshee!

Mimi said: “A scream much like the sirens of death.

A piercing voice prophesying your approaching demise. 

This ethereal noise is your death sentence. 

Coming at you like the ultrasonic squeaks of a bat.

And when your heart stops beating and nobody will be there for their last goodbye, you won’t find me. 

A broken childhood, a motherless orphan.

You failed as a parent now I falter as a child.

And you’ve chosen this path. Drowned every new promise in a bigger sip.

A Wormgirl, unwanted. Birthed into hopelessness. With my torso open for a second and my heart on display. It was yours for the taking and you routed a stake through it. 

And I died a thousand times. Took refuge in my chrysalis where I licked up the taste of iron in the red; healed my wounds.

Reincarnated into the Promised Land. Emerge into something bigger than I was destined for. 

The moth dies so the butterfly can exist.”
