A Dying Laughter

Children at play
Come and hear my story
Here at the haunted shores of Avalon
Where you play your eternal games
Welcoming the souls of the damned
With a dying laughter
Of painful secrets
That pierce through the skin
Like the thorns of the red rose
That I gave my dark lover
As she clung her nails into my heart
My heart
My dead heart
And as my blood splattered
Onto her face
Onto her hands
Onto her breasts
She laughed
A dying laughter
Of evil incarnate
That rules me
And paralizes
With eternal inertia
Drowned with the memory of you
Of your selfish love
And your narcissistic seduction
Of your Witchcraft
My Love
I will be your downfall
