I walked the edges of Life and Death
With a sense of Loss..
And a taste of Betrayal.
My feet bled blood rose-red..
I felt each thorn as it tore my skin
And broken glass..pierced my heart
I felt the coldness seeping inside
It trickled in me like a frozen fountain
It was you who asked
Will I always love you?
And I Had said let Death even try to take that truth..
I begged sweet Death why
Did He not take me away.. before
I had to taste the sharp fangs of perfidy
All I was rewarded with was.. a deep silence
And the crashing sense of eternal Sorrow..
It was then..
You who came to love me..
When I had given up on myself…
You whispered the words that would soothe me..
And give me a moment’s bliss..
It was you who warmed my heart
With strange hope ..and Happiness I would feel..
You coiled me in your Diabolic Arms..
And I rested my head on your shoulders..
Crying my heart’s silent sorrow..
You looked at me calmly..
And your eyes burned with Evil Fire..
It drew me in .. like a spool of Love…
And I believed in a reason..
A cause that now burned inside me..
Like an ember that was never put out..
It grew inside me ..and you helped it nurture
A thought so cruel to ..
Bring Happiness for me..
I took the knife out..
Of oh.. so sweet revenge..
And I slit His throat..
In the Darkness of Night..
All was silent..once again..
Your Blood seeped out and drenched me
With a sense of end..
All the thoughts of my Final happiness..
Left me now..
As I stared into your Cold dead eyes..
And I stood drenched in your betrayed blood..
Like beads of Ruby shining in the dark..
Words like betrayal..and revenge..
Now felt hollow like my Soul..
And you bled silently to Death..
I looked for Revenge..
Where are your shoulders now.. I need to feel
Where is your comforting touch..
My heart turned stone cold..
And then I saw Death..
Looking at me with his Handsome face..
I smiled at him..
He gave me a malicious grin..
And turned his back upon me..
I clutched at the hem of his cloak..
And he now returned a smile of Pity..
Why did you betray yourself?
Why did you embrace Revenge?
I release you..
But will you be happy..
But will you find peace..
He looked down and kissed me
With his cold sweet lips….
Death took me…
As I felt the Poison in me
Taking my breath away…
