My Black Rose

I trace the outline of your silhouette with my fingertips
Hear those three words roll off your pretty lips
Strip you down to the bone so I can see what’s inside
And find that black heart into which I can confide

Stare into blue eyes, mesmerizing like the ocean
A dead rose passed from me to you symbolizing my devotion
A concoction of emotions that stir deep within
From an angel of darkness that crawls beneath the skin

And there’s a passion that we share for the macabre and malevolent
An odour in the air, not dissimilar from the devil’s scent
Our lust for love wrapped in blood and pain
Looked down upon by the innocent and condemned by the sane

And you’ll wrap me in your black wings like the fallen angel you are
And in this embrace that cannot be broken, place my hand upon your heart
And I’ll burn through you like fire, a desire that cannot be quenched
A longing that cannot be fore filled, a love so dark and immense

And so I’ll trace the outline of your body with my bloody tongue
Hands bounds together in a stitch that will never come undone
And we’ll slumber in the darkness beneath sheets of pain
In a tomb of madness, swathed in the falling rain

And through all the blood and passion, the unmistakeable sin
In the silence of the dark night I hear a curious din
Within your chest the sound comes, one that’s been there from the start
I move myself in closer to hear the beating of your black heart

And now I sit all alone, in my room I ponder
I close my eyes and think of you and my mind begins to wander
From dark eyes to black nails, from the head down to the toes
I sit within the darkness and write an ode for My Black Rose

My Black Rose
