closet in a skeleton


The lady held ransom a heart locked tightly such as a vault
And only she had the keys to call our love to a halt
Many times I’d seen those cursed keys
She’d use them to torture, torment and tease 

Sometimes she’d come to the vault to make a small withdrawal
there wasn’t many things for which I had the wherewithal
She’d use what she stole from a heart bled and dry
Then demanded luxury to which I’d avidly comply

I recall the jingling of those keys as she’d sashay her way away
A fascinating form flowing fluidly into a fantasy’s array
She helped herself to a buffet of blood and retrograde regret
And those were days and keys this ex-paramour will ne’re forget

Her beauty was born for me, of that I do lay claim
Alas, too many other men knew her naked and by name
One year, four months and twelve days is what she granted me 
While all the time she was in possession of a f*****g skeleton key

    It sounds to me she was hardly worth holding. :) Catie
