My heart keeps beating
While my body dies, my heart keeps beating
As the world sighs, this heart keeps repeating
A strangled cry, a desolate embrace
Of a flower strewn grave. Of a lover erased.
A dream long ago fulfilled, it no longer lingers
Brought to despair by Thanatos’ brushing fingers
As my feet move me forward, one step at a time
I keep looking back to that witch was mine.
I can’t help but wander what wrath I did incur
To bring me to this place, this pain I must endure
At the precipice of madness my mind will now dwell
The horrors made real, all the ravages of hell.
And in this world what we sew we must go reaping
And even without a soul My Heart Keeps Beating.
