Death, even for a one eyed king

Emotions are the ropes that hand from tree branches Blowing in the breeze like Spanish Moss And from these emotions love is knotted Love A nose that suffocates us While ill feet dangle with gravity toe distends in reach Yet it is we who allow are selves to dangle One would thinks o freely When in reality we kill are selves for what we think beautifully Perhaps it is best to love from a fare As long as their worth loving Dose it mater if they know at all Why must we string up loves ropes When we know it will be the death of us Perhaps love is more a blind mans world To see beauty in ugly things You must overcome death the ropes bring Yet love it seems lives to trick us all Hidden Death in life’s clothing But a one eyes man is king in a blinds man world Some of us care knives Cut lose the ropes that strangle us Left one eye to see for all A laugh in the face of love But love you see is a vengeful ***** Can’t stand to not have the last laugh So for ever on are toes We dance around love Leaving the club before were swept away in the mosh pit Yet love is a shadow we can never seem to stray away from It calls to us like fear in the dark Tempting are hearts with visions of those we once loved So it seems weather we suffocate now or later in are dreams Love is death Even for a one eyed king
