The darkness falls like perfect silk
on my mind, my body, black milk
Undone, my bitter heart ensues
I gave it my all, I promise you!
With stained and tearful eyes I gaze
Up at the gates of heaven's maze
I feel your stare on my tethered throat
on my broken my wings, my feathered coat
You rest your eyes on my blooded lip
Pooring freely, staining my black slip
I note the danger in your approaching eyes
I gave it my all, my withered voice cries
In the distance, a light catches my eye
A voice so deep : "I know you lie!"
I scream in aguish, recoil in fear
He slashed me deep, from chin to ear
Upon my neck, a beaded necklace rests
The one I was given, for I have passed this test
I breathe through the slashes on my skin
I gave it my all, but I didn't win
