BARBWIRE TOURNIQUET (song lyrics)

BARBWIRE TOURNIQUET

The darkest wood
The blackest crows
A drop of blood
A flame filled rose
A band of thorn
The deepest cut
Where flesh is torn
And life slams shut

The killer runs
He cannot hide
No chance to mourn
His slain bride
The killer runs
He cannot stay
There’s no escape
The dusted prints and DNA

A deafening silence
A falling petal
The tightening grip
Of twisted metal
The smell of death
A sweet bouquet
An empty breath
A barbwire tourniquet

The killer runs
He cannot hide
No chance to mourn
His slain bride
The killer runs
He cannot stay
There’s no escape
The dusted prints and DNA

    You paint such a vivid and dramatic picture… Impressive! :)

    It would make a good movie, also! :)

    Wow, thank you Donna for your kind words. I feel like a bit of a beginner after reading your poetry though. I must try harder!!! I think some of your work could easily be put to music!!

    Was toying with the idea of adding a “bridge” as it maybe seems a bit short. This may be added later after the second verse,
    The story is breaking on CNN
    A serial killer, body count ten,
    The tables have turned
    Theres no place to run,
    This killer will buuuurn,
    Fugitive & prey of the CIA
    FBI agents on every highway,
    Across every state of the USA
    This wasn’t your first Barbwire tourniquet
