A Grim Sovereignty
I kissed your lips and whispered to your soul,
"Midst this dark and decay, we shall reign."
I raised you, my king, from that darkened grave,
Decomposing, rancid, and bloodstained.
But have no fear, my darling, for the rot that clings.
I am a witch of the finest making.
A necromancer's breath and a gamble with death
Will diminish your undertaking.
Now, restored, you are quite the sight to behold,
A monster of my finest creation.
"My Queen.."you whisper to my blackened heart.
For you, I embrace this damnation.
And I'll kiss your lips and whisper to your soul,
"Midst this dark and decay, we shall reign."
You are my abominable king of this putrid throne--
And, together, we shall rule the profane...
I kissed your lips and whispered to your soul
Many moons ago that is all we needed to make us whole
But I no longer seek the luxuries of the corporal world
I am a raven that has the pleasure of choosing my bones
Crosses on a corrupt land and elevated by a jaded society
I watch through shrouded veils as they succumb to thievery
Malice and injustice will be their undoing
They say the dead can dance
How they delight at the burden of the living
They say dead men tell no tales
And these rumours serve me well
Because I am dead yet I live to tell
If I should so choose to speak
What truths would you seek?
Silver, and the offerings of peace?
Another kiss from the lips of a forbidden dream?
But let’s speak of trust...
If I could trust
While I mix with vagabonds and pirates
And devour spirits that sing of fear
I could warm your bones on the breath of the deceased
And tell you tales spoke from the cackle and caw of ravens
As incoherent as fog in shadows
Where mutineers gain strength through fear
And talk of forbidden things with a mind so clear
Purest crystal glimmering in unclean ribcages of the lawless
Where threats bode more terror against the powerful
And they will bow to me
As their lies spill from the unclean loins of harlots
In the houses of ill repute removed from supernatural legacy
To the gutter where dogs of the flesh tear at the dead
But they will bow to me
Under the screams of ghosts
That scatter the seven seas and beyond
To crypts of ancient London
Where I quibble with the dead
The letters of justice ignored that I read
Transformed to ancient mutterings under my breath
As I burn devils until an empty hell is all that's left
For you and I…

I kissed your lips and whispered to your soul;
I surrender my heart, I surrender control.
If I look in your eyes, will I see your intention?
Are there any more secrets I failed to mention?
Your words are like music, but I've heard this song;
It started out perfect, it ended all wrong.
I'm scared beyond words to hand you my heart;
The last time you I loved you, my world fell apart.
I'm skittish, I'm sketchy, there's no one I trust.
Loyalty gets lost when we're blinded by lust.
Back in your arms, like no time has passed.
These bonds are strong, they hold tight & fast.
I'm falling headlong in the loveliest dream;
Your blue eyes shine bright with the loveliest gleam.
I swore to myself I'd keep you at a distance;
Each time we touch weakens my resistance.
My resolve is shaky, it's starting to waiver;
You sound like redemption, will you be my savior?
You kissed my lips and whispered to my soul;
I promise to stay, babe, our love makes us whole.
One More Kiss
Kissed your lips and whispered to your soul,
hearing weeping of the wind in melancholy moans.
Tortured by your absence, I taste fear of frosty lips,
numbness overcoming as I kiss your chilled memory,
inhaling and exhaling intimacy of what we had.
A final caressing breeze on nape of my neck, rests
between my sighs, stillness sleeps in deep slumber.
Remnants of flickering shadows expose lingering heart,
romance and passion carved lovingly into marble slab,
face of stone crumbling into blackness of tilled soil.
I close my eyes and kiss you a perfumed goodbye
walking with glassy stare on path of forlorn roses,
sunshine washed away by salted tears of closure
as I yearn for one more kiss until I share your realm.
I Kissed Your Lips And Whispered Into Your Soul
Was our lips
Completing the fire within me
Burning and turning in my stomach
Finally my butterflies left
But roses started to root
They rooted deep within me
I was paralyzed by your softness
But now i grow
Fast in the direction of you
Love has blossomed
Love has sparked
My eyes look drunk
Because you kissed me!

Blue Is Not Everything
‘I KISSED YOUR LIPS AND WHISPERED TO YOUR SOUL…’
I might shed a tear or two; But I understand the truth.
Never ever be guilty of what you did.
Cause each day I love you more for what you did.
I know that you are not supreme as God
But I also know of the fact that the
mystical and sacred energies you pour from your
telepathic soul into mine are Godly.
The separate roads you and I share
is the reason of my madness.
But that's another fact which reminds me of myself and tells me
how whole I am with or without you.
There is no reason to impose you on me
as you grow inside of me incessantly.
The way you resonates in me heals
my existence from the inside out.
The more your flames burn inside me,
the more they tell me that maybe it's more about me than you.
And perhaps that's the reason I don't
crave to intertwine our paths.
So here I stand on the verge of my sanity's insanity,
silently whispering to your soul that I accept you
for who you are, even if you don't accept me.
I kissed your lips,
And whispered to your soul.
I waited to hear you,
I reached for you again,
But there was nothing there.
I took a step back,
I looked into your eyes,
And there was nothing there.
You blocked out my voice,
You just didn't want to listen,
Because there was nothing there.
So I left to find someone,
Who would whisper back.
I kissed your lips and whispered to your soul "come, my love, it's time to go."
And as you lay on death's recline
I took your hand, so cold in mine.
Lying next to your diminished form
My body trembling,
keeping yours warm
Your rasping breaths came long and low
I said again,"it's time to go."
The poison stung just like knife
You were my love
You were my life
Our hearts together beat
Soft and sweet
And in the next life
Again we'll meet
