Dear VictorDear Victor,
Is it not enough that death consumes your life?
The shadow stole your living heart,
Your family, your wife.
The trocar drains the corpses dry
The veins are severed and still you try
To give life to the dead.
This is not true alchemy
There is no key in mercury
Dig deep beneath your eye
But the soul is long gone when you die.
Your blood-stained amputation saw
captures your pale reflection
You look like death, thus face to face
You see no imperfection
Spark life in decomposing flesh
Bring back what never should be lost
And breathe the ashes of your world
When your soul pays the cost.
Oh Victor, if you'd only see
The monster that you've made of me
This soul is not my own
And I'm condemned to walk alone.
I know that it was with true love
That this madness was bred
But you must understand, my love,
That I'd rather be dead...
A Heart that bleeds RosesShe sleeps in a glass coffin
floating wistfully upon the ocean
Her dreams dance Heaven high; swept out of my reach
Whilst seraphim songs mock my damnation
Deafening my ears as I crouch on the beach.
I had fallen for her; a goddess incarnate
I, the morning star cast into death
I had called out her name with the voice of an Angel
-My last celestial breath.
The diamonds I once scattered in the sky
Did lend me their light in my nocturnal quest
The night hid my grotesque distortion
That shadows had only caressed.
For beauty's eyes would not bear this face
Blackened mirrors reflected my fate
But this world and its darkness already consumed her
I found I had fallen too late.
Needles tore holes in her delicate veins
And I watched -cloaked in shadows- her writhing in bliss
My rivals condemned her for being my love
And stole from me her living kiss.
When her eyes fluttered closed I descended upon her
And entered my temple divine
The violation of a corpse
Exchanged what I prayed would be mine.
NecromanticStained on white, a holy cross
as crimson as the blood I take
From she; my beauty now entombed
severed from me, never to wake.
She'd sworn me vows in her sweet blood
that bound her heart to me in life
And so I've come to take what's mine
to crown her my eternal wife
A halo of roses celestial white
I place on her head as I lay in death's bed
My soul seeks the purest expression of heart-
To make love to the beautiful dead
I clasp her tight with all my might
Let my love warm her frozen skin
My demise spared, her beauty bared
I lose myself within
What fire ignites at her cold touch
Passions flame to which I'm doomed
I weep with lust at every thrust
To the corpse of love I'm groom'd
I feel her sigh against my cheek
I hear her voice deep in the earth
She bids me come in nine months hence
to witness our son's birth
I kiss her lips one final time
I cannot think this act a crime
There is no Hell in which I'll burn..
greater than life till my return.
The torment of being parted from her...
All that matters
He whispers my name
His presence encircles me with passion's mist
beneath glass stars we had touched and kissed
and rivaled with true love's flame
When my life would never be the same.
He sings in my ear
And lithe arms hold me as we sway
The world; its darkness fading away
He tells me not to fear
That I am the love that he holds dear
He strokes my face
He tells me that I am beauty entombed
In a foolish realm that has wrongly assumed
That tries to taint me with disgrace
But we shall find a secret place
He shows me he loves me
Through cracked mirrors he proves their lies
With promises spelled with fireflies
That dispel and fly so free
And leave us in our ecstacy
He is by my side
He places my hands upon his chest
And with his kiss my lips are blessed
I raise the gift I've had to hide
And praise the night that falseness died.
