~ The Play ~


It was the perfect murder

In the most beautiful kind of way

A slit throat by candlelight

Up on the grandest stage

Complete with a dose

Of just what you need to take

Now sit back, relax, and enjoy the play.


The curtain plummets

Revealing a soul for sale today

This is getting much too real

No words I could find to say


As my blood slowly leaves me

My thoughts are on your face

The sweetest smile on your lips

As you put the knife in place
