Random Rhymes on Love and Death

Like death in slow motion
with special effects
one organ fails
then on to the next

I'll dance on the gallows
to your final request
hand me my guitar
I'll play it my best.
And hand me my harp
I'll play any key
to bring healing to your heart
from the one breaking in me.

Putting prayers into bottles
which I fling to the sky
but the breaking of glass
is the only reply.

To all of the lovers that I've ever known
I'm sorry, I'm sorry we stand each alone.
I shopped all around for a stylish noose
that would look good with my sandals
before they hung loose.

I did it for you
for the lust in your eyes
and your skeleton dancing
in fleshly disguise.
