lie dead with you
by emma louise pike
my heart lies with your dying body
bleeding on the floor.
i cry- but no tears stream my face,
my eyes are lifeless- like yours.
the words you once spoke to me have rotted, died away...
and now all that's left is 'me.'
your dead lights have left me...
with nothing left to say.
so, i kiss your golden lips- and my heart screams,
the poison i sip brings me to my knees,
so, i lie with you on the blood-drenched floor
and it drains my life away...
but i would rather lie, dead, with you
...than live another day.
