Love's Coffin


Love's Coffin

Love’s Coffin


From the blackness you appear

Freely wielding pain and fear

An evil angel fallen from grace

Prey hypnotized by the beauty of your face


Another shall find eternal death

As your kiss seductively steals their breath

Jagged teeth hidden by your smile

Temptingly disguising your cutting guile 


Midnight dance with the dead

To lure me into a devilish bed

As I swore my love my soul was lost

Vainly unaware of the cost


You captured me without a fight

Now all that was will never be right

I strain to reach you as you pass

Imprisoned behind blood stained glass


How did I end up in this coffin’s jar

Wondering who I am and what you are

I beg for my blessed release

Knowing immortality brings no peace


My life’s chamber drains of air

Your laughter mocks me in despair

Shriveling I disappear from the light

An undying victim of the night

Holy crap...this is really, really good! Amazingly good.



Don't know what to say to that comment - except that I am grateful and humbled.

Poetry is what gets lost in translation.
