This one would make more sense. To love, to die. Thoughts?

I mean, everybody thinks about it at some point

To marry, to thrill, to love, to kill

You never see it coming, you only get to see it go

A first kiss, a first love, a first murder

Head hung from the heights and I sit and I birder

The delight, the rush, the touch

The caress of your blood on my hands

Sweat structuring my glands

I loved you, I pledged I did

But you fell and you weakened and you hid

I mean, what was I meant to do?

I'm not deranged – just insane

I prayed to God, assured in hell

Pay my dues and fall in a well

Devotion, I endured, all for you, darling

You left my fists in two great gnarling

You importuned, actually

And you make me smile

Au revoir, your in my heart

Death may never do us apart
