A Love Affair With Death


I once had a Love affair with Death
In which I was the Queen of Pain
We built a house above the rest
And thrived on every bit of vain

He was a character, to say the least
A sinister and playful charm
With whose touch brings a sense of ease
To lost souls and hearts disarmed

Bound to him I found a means
To cradle all my guilt and shame
Through bouts of rage and looming schemes
A riveting and ruthless game

We sang the songs of shock and awe
Mimicking the voice of Fright
Untouchable, above the law
We summoned all the Darkest Nights

But Solitude doth finds its way
To suffocate the melancholy
I broke the chains and ran away
To unknown ground and territory

I chanced upon a lake so bright
And met my Soul, all drenched in wrath
And that was when I married Life
The day I saw myself and laughed
