I took a shortcut through blood to get back to you.
I knew that your gaping wounds were still fairly new
For you to be able to finally let it all go.
You need this injection to get through this night.
I really hope now that you adore me as much as your dragon
Because after three years of battling against it
I have nothing to show but pure frigid waters that hang like
Lonely icicles from my eyes.
But when you’ve been smoking for too long
And Memnoch is walking in your shoes,
The only thing that surrounds you is a musky-drugged fog.
While the stage that we’re on becomes a broken ashtray
And, I the protagonist, a butted Marlboro.
“It’s only a matter of trust,” you say.
But when your favorite lover is White Eve instead of me
I do not have much trust left in me.
You carve my name into your arm
Thinking that I should be impressed.
But your gesture does not scream your love,
It merely whispers your derangement.
I wish I could drag you across filed nails,
So you would become pristine.
But I can only kiss you with these bruised lips,
Hoping that you will come around (for more).
Although you don’t seem to care
As you take another line from my breasts.
Your ocean eyes wander over space and time
Snatching the stoned affection you can find.
“Please don’t die,” I beg you.
I know of your secret lovers
That you keep hidden beneath black satin covers.
They’re going to blow your mind one of these days
Just as they did with all the others.
If only I could bring it all back to you
But there’s nothing I can do
Because you’re Poe without a muse,
Who merely craves for silver rockets
And playing Russian roulette with five bullets.
The smoke rises up and around your solar plexus
All I am for you is a Plastic Venus,
Ideal for viewing but not for loving.
You bestow your worship to the Green Goddess instead
Because she can let you see Heaven and Hell in your bed.
But remember that I now hold the power
Because I’ve raped all your lovers.
You’ll need to beg me before I’ll shoot you up.
I know how to fight back with an empty gun loaded with placebos.
