Death Among the Leaves

My poetic heartache

There must be more than this

My eyes are hurting

More in painful bliss

A lust is filled with feeling

Temptation that is wrong

As my life is ending

You will start to sing along

Songs about a loathing

About a darkness and a pain

What more is there to my mind?

What is there left to gain?

So sing with me so slowly

Walk me to the black

Patiently through crimson

Don't you ever look back

And watch for when they say

There's been a death among the leaves…
