The Darling

The darling girl who was so sweet to me Look how quickly she has fallen into misery Like Babylon’s best harlot for turning tricks Burning down what we were beyond a fix My darling girl who has bewitched you to be so petty? Throwing pity parties all alone with cheap confetti I would have savedContinue reading “The Darling”

The Land

I approach your dwelling oh so cautiously while still holding back You beckoned with promises of living forever and ever without lack So beautiful is the land you inhabit, warm and full of life Can I really count myself here among those with no strife?

Lazarus

Lying dead awake in the cold seclusion of the tomb The perverse inverse of the innocence in the womb How long has it been, Lord? How much more time can I afford? Didn’t I deny you when I was living my life in times past? When the faith of my fathers was considered only lastContinue reading “Lazarus”

All my best mistakes came with big brown eyes

Well I like fire as much as the next soul, my love. But to set a whole city ablaze seems a step above. We never intended harm to them did we, my dear? Love was on our mind yet we inspired so much fear. All my best mistakes came with big brown eyes. You sawContinue reading “All my best mistakes came with big brown eyes”
