Drowning The Devil In The Deep Blue Ink – Part 5/5

The night was dark and so were our sins
As we cut and packed them in a case
And plunged it in deep waters
Not a sign of regret on her face
Her cold hand gave me the shivers
But I held on to it tight
Hope was all that was left in my heart
Love had faded away in the night

She assured me everything was going to be alright
With no earnestness in her eyes
What a beautiful face she had!
But her mouth was full of lies
She whispered in my ears that she loved me
And she knew a safe haven where we can stay
The future will be taken care of
Once the past is washed away

She asked me to undress her
As she lay mischievously on the bed
She wanted to get down to business
I, though, had a better idea in my head
I pulled out a rope from neath
You could see she was caught by surprise
All our emotions were about to erupt
Very little was left to disguise

And she laid there bare
Tied to the bed so fast
So meticulously God must have created her
But nothing’s ever built to last
She surrendered herself completely to me
And I had no issue with the deal
Her body was ablaze with passion;
My heart too numb to feel

I had my hands around her neck
And I choked her to death
A strange pleasure it gave me
To see her gasping for breath
The moment was splendid and surreal
I had forgotten all of my pain
Oh, the high I felt at the time
Like the one that never comes back again

I asked her to give me a second chance
I still loved her, I let her know
For a girl with no wits
She has a mountain for an ego
I apologised for my rude behaviour
She, though, isn’t the one to forgive and forget
Not a word she did speak
She must have been quite upset

So I untied her and locked her up in the refrigerator
Before the house began to smell
Just the perfect place for her cold heart
While she made her trip to hell
I asked her if she needed anything
But all my efforts were in vain
It was no use pretending
We would never be on talking terms again

I wanted to be with her night and day
But I had to leave her side
The cops have found the old man’s body
And are reconstructing how he died
With loads of money in my pocket
It wasn’t hard to find a new shelter
I must admit I’ve begun to miss her
It’s been a while since I’ve felt her

They’re printing all sorts of stories in the papers
They’ve even given me a name
All my life I’ve been anonymous
I don’t think I can handle this new found fame
The cops will trace her through the old man
And through her they’ll trace me
They must be on a hot scent right now
I’ve left behind a one too many

But they’re just petty human beings
God has already made his plan
He has built a golden stairway for me
He wants me to go out like a man
Taking your own life isn’t cowardice
It’s the ultimate act of bravery
You can continue with your happy lives
This world just isn’t meant for me

Any minute now, I expect Him to call
And soon I’ll be face to face with Him
They’ll only find a corpse here
With lots of pills but no soul within
They’ll also find this piece of paper
And I wish they’ll print it too
Don’t know why you wanted me hanged
When I’ve done no harm to you

How can you hate me
When you don’t even have a heart?
All the world’s a stage
And I’ve just played my part
I’m not asking for your forgiveness
Nothing can be more degrading
Don’t even dig my grave now
I’ve begun eroding
