See the darkness that surrounds us You are safe from all your crimes Lift your knife Oh and take your sweet little time my sweet Stab me, stab me, blood flows, are we free? Stab me, stab me, love glows, are we free? Dance around my dead ghosted white body Life was no better to me you see See the knife, as I look into your eyes All I see is dead dead skies I try to speak of broken promises You slit my throat, for once you tried Stab me, stab me, blood flows, are we free? Stab me, stab me, love glows, are we free? Dance around my dead ghosted white body Life was no better to me you see Raindrops of death pour over me Your blank stare, my blanket of eternity My blood flows into your hate I now am bloodless; we are of but one single fate Stab me, stab me, blood flows, are we free? Stab me, stab me, love glows, are we free? Dance around my dead ghosted white body Life was no better to me you see See the happiness you never found? You lost it like the my blood lost in the killing grounds You thought you could slay my lovesick heart I laughed and laughed as you lifted the knife so sharp Stab me, stab me, blood flows, are we free? Stab me, stab me, love glows, are we free? Dance around my dead ghosted white body Life was no better to me you see My heart was lost long ago When you stopping loving and bringing the rose From then on my heart you see was froze Exiled to your bondage, I stared at the knife And accepted my fate

Hi Arthur, I don't know how I missed this well written, deep emotional write. The pain and heartache was so clear. Such gloom and doom. It was so sad watching the character in this piece accept their fate. I may be late, but congratulations on getting the poem of the day, it was well deserved- Alexis

Wow Arthur! This poem is like watching a Shakesperian (sp?) play. So dramatic and tragic. Love can save us or kill us, I know. Yet we survive to dream and love again. Just love your expressive pen...and heart. Carole

Dear friend Arthur you have proved it again today "Pen is mightier than sward". It’s a great work of pen's mighty skills and mind's imagination which has created this beauty. It's a classic dear friend and those who had done these deeds and they would cry in their graves before the burning questions you have placed before them. It goes as a favorite one of mine.A full 7+ for U. Love and best wishes always...Ravindra K Kapoor

I had no idea I had hurt you so badly arthur. Its just that it is so hard to resist Tim's poetry. He is just so romantic. However this new lyric you've written has touched my heart sweetie. You never know. For now I will add this to my favourites. There's always hope. Lots Of Love, armand.

Oh, Arthur, the pain in your poem is expressed so profoundly. "My blood flows into your hate" -- hate always produces nothing but pain. Lost love is a burden we sometimes carry through an entire lifetime. Powerful poetry!
