Lovers Inferno

In this darkest night
A sadistic world with fiery caves
Banshees scorching the clouds
Reptiles with gargantuan appetites
In this rapturous plight
Our love will conquer everything

Rescued you from a hell
Far from home
Rescued you from a deep red sea
Adrift in fear
Stripped cold
Stranded alone
But, we shalt not drown

I feel the heat rise underneath
As we escape
Burning bridges, and slices of death
An inferno flaming beneath
Searing bones chest deep
Our magic will wake the dead
An eruption from a vicious sleep

Hold me tight
Squeeze me till my last breath
Uplifts you out of this evil pit
Dive into my tiger’s eye
Kiss me hard for this last time
Hard till you taste my soul
Imprison me within your heart
Until we reunite on the other side

Night

Have a grave feeling I just can’t shake
A dark paranoia, even Jack couldn’t
Help me binge away.

Shadowy figures still appear
On your side of the bed
Whispering, taunting, praising
Above your head.
I’ve witnessed fearfully as you sleep
Peacefully in harm’s way.
Something is haunting you.
Grimace across its face.
Burnt rubber bleeds through the air.
Too panicked to move.
Can’t remember what to say.
Frozen still. Caught in a chilling stare.
Pleading for the light of day.

Good morning, I’m thankful…
I look at you from across the table.
Enjoying your corn cakes and maple.
I force out a smile, exhausted and baggy eyed.
Whisper I love you, and hope we’ll survive the next night.
