dirge

take my eyes, make me blind
no longer jealous of the passers by
holding hands they walk together
share a bond that lasts forever
go ahead and cast your spell
take me out of my own hell
a prisoner of my own desire
soul scorched black in lonely fire
can't make me yours, can't make me whole
no respite for the wanting soul
letters written never sent
after all it wasn't meant
silence is not understanding
still I think back to the branding
lips to neck, take the life you give
don't want forgiveness for my sins
still you leave me here to lie
drain the blood please let me die
light the candle, cast the spell
escort me from this lyric hell
happiness not mine to wish
only silence from the bliss
no more lovers songs to play
a dirge will end the poets day
