    Her bouquets are wilted
    Too long has she slept
    Their cruel red mouths darkened
    To bowed silhouettes
    I saw in a new moon
    With her scent on my breath
    But then all to soon
    Came the hunger for flesh

    I held her in eyes like necropoli
    Laying her on a tomb with a view
    Lighting her from her feet
    To the stars in her hair
    Drove sweet blood to her throat
    And my lips parted there

    In the tone of splintered bone

    She screams benighted
    My limbs ignite
    A carnal carnivore
    On all fours to go

    An ebon Nemesis
    From torture gardens of Dis
    Having never breathed an Eve
    As far narcotic as this
    Two spellbound hellhounds
    Hearts pounding loud
    Racing Heaven out of focus
    Under quicksilver clouds

    God is maimed come let us prey

    To lunar deities that pave deadways
    Twixt the living and the grave
    Amor E Morte
    To cast our feral shadows there
    We made love bleed on a deathbed shared
    Where, begging me to feed
    To best be were

    I licked her wounds and ate her rare

    Her wanton words incurred
    A sin-ridden tongue
    To open trading in fur
    Never were those gates of pearl
    So rubbed to their cusp
    Never were the Worlds above
    So bitten with the bestial

    Seraphim fell like guillotines

    Giving gracious head
    Instead of harking prophecies
    And how our brothers sang
    Amor E Morte
    Theirs was a chorus for raucous souls
    Shifting shape and lifting napes
    To commemorate
    Erotic stains
    Amor E Morte

    Unfasten thy masque
    Come skyclad to my arms
    Leave thy gown a dark pool at thy feet
    I yearn musky valleys that no man hath seen
    The chill keen of stars
    Over yew and deep wooded ravines
    A hidden meridian
    Where Midian may be

    In black antlered glades
    Encunted in this forest Goddess
    She whispers my name
    I buck under flames
    Animal nitrates
    Howling through my veins

    I ride riptides that wrest and writhe to the fore
    New lusts eclipsing lips
    That brought me to this verge of War
    With inner beasts unleashed
    To feast, fuck and run
    Rampart in chase of she wolf pacts
    Forged on heat with setting suns

    I love the night
    It would murder my soul
    Should I ever fall blind
    For though thy flesh haunts
    I keep also in mind
    The stampede of clouds
    From dusk's predatory sky

    Purple-versed like the funeral hearse
    That first turned thee over to my
    Unbridled kiss when I found thee in mist
    Dressed for the sepulchre
    My Demon bride

    God is maimed come let us prey

    To Lunar Deities that pave deadways
    Twixt the living and the grave
    Amor E Morte
    Ours was a chorus for raucous souls
    Shifting shape and lifting nape
    To commemorate
    Erotic stains

    Amor E Morte
    Amor E Morte
    Amor, Amor
    Amor E Morte
    Amor (Amor)
    Amor (Amor)
    Amor E Morte
