Death, A Mode Of Transport

Death, A Mode Of Transport

My name is Marissa
Marissa Joan
I fell in love
As anyone can

Our love was dangerous
Deadly it be
Our families hated
Anyone could see

If only I‘d dared,
Taken my chance
And shared with you
forbidden romance

I think now and forever
About what I missed
That single taste
From when we kissed

In the dark
Late at night
I sat with you
All was right

The cock of rifle
The bang was said
A collision and then
Endless red.

Dragged away
Beaten and chained
I cried for you
As it rained

Locked away
Way up high
No longer young
But still I cry

Unable to scrub
away the stain
Unable to sleep,
Entrapped with pain

I feel the end
At last she’s here
Bringing an old friend
I feel her near

I lie on my bed
A gentle hand feels
Touches my cheek
Beside me she kneels

I close my eyes
Release my last breath
Here I come darling
Coming to you through death.
