Die, My DarlingDie, My Darling11 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Good morning my beautiful one
How does life find you today?
It would never find your face again
If ever I had my way
You see my darling, I love you so
But I just can't let you live
For I've nothing left to offer you
And don't want what you can give
Ignore my foolish notions
Don't worry your pretty head
You won't be worried about anything
The day you wake up dead
I'll have your name etched in stone
and see to it you're buried beneath
You'll have the finest comforts
that the dead could ever need
So when the sun shines in your eyes
and the rain falls on your chest
Appreciate your fineries
and enjoy your final rest
I Am Murdering You, DearI Am Murdering You, Dear10 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
In the shadows, my morbid face watches
The silhouette of your body
Is outlined in the dusty night.
The glint of the blade
From the ghostly streak of daylight
Catches my eye.
I am focused.
You think you are alone now,
But even in a room full of people
You are alone.
Take a deep breath,
It is this I warned you about.
Taking the metal to your skin,
The friction burns across your wrists
And a crimson monster consumes
Your delicate hands.
This is a stain that water cannot wash clean.
This is a stain that cannot wash clean.
You are stuck in my bittersweet abyss.
Every drop of scarlet that trickles from you
Is the bleeding of my heart.
How the precious razor has chosen
Another innocent victim
To dote upon.
I reach out to grab you in my clasp,
Before it is too late
And you are addicted to becoming numb,
But I cannot reach
And you no longer heed my cry.
You are doing this
As a consequence of me.
I am solely to blame.
Every swipe of the blade
Across your gentle complexion
