I want to be mourned,

And adorned with jewels.

Grieved, and gowned in gold,

A ray of sun in the black sea.


I'm lit aflame, and blazing,

Blushing, because you're gazing

Upon my naked soul.


I cherish it, and I savor it,

Knowing you forgave me long ago.


Why do I harbor this hope?

Its buried deep, yet blooms,

A sadistic rose with the most vile perfume.


Defying my own heart,

It chokes me from within,

Reminiscent exile and sin.


So veil my ghost in roses and gold,

Know I loved you and let me go.

Sail me down, down deep,

Let me sink,

Shimmering and wispy,

A ray of sun in the black sea.
