My Death Will Be Accompanied

-

Love will kill us all

Fire must burn

And lives must die

But how much of me

Is you or I?

"The time" that it takes

To kill my heart's desire

Binds me in laughter

And spits out rath

Puking disaster all around

Who can come "around here"?

All the pictures of thee insanity

Lock it's hold onto my mind

But, sure, I will still die

Even when there's not enough meat balls

__in my spaghetti

____I can learn to carry on

______and die, peacefully

As the ships crash into the docks

And the waves splash onto the rocks

I'll know nothing of what I was meant to

And only my ideas will get me lost

__within them

But the fire will not be put out

__by mere water

____as soon as it's all gassed up

By then, the flames will be eternal

And nobody will be able

__to put it out

Funny how there's no help stopping

__a gasoline burning fire

But it's so lovely I won't be the only one dead

So my misery enjoys it's company

Death will be complete

No need to rapture others

__into my afterlife

The fire will take care of that, for me
