The End of Me

Bleach my bones in the sun and wrap them in scarlet ribbon

Bury them in the warm earth and mark them with stones

Under the stars I am bound to a realm of eternal sleep

I will be forgotten and only the birds will sing for me


The Begging Ocean 

I can feel the ocean

Even though I cannot see it

I can smell the salt

Lying savoury upon my lips

I hear the roar of the waves

I roar back

And I can feel myself getting lost

I can see the darkness of the storm

It’s my veins

Do you feel it?

The pull of the current

Begging you to step in

Be swept away

To lose your footing on the stones

Seaweed under your feet

I’m scared of the ocean

I know what she can do

But I’m drawn to her all the same

I feel at peace by the shore

But I never go in the water

Do Your Worst 

Stab me with pins 

And bind my hand 

Stitch mystery lips 

I don’t give a damn 

The winds are changing 

You dream of blood 

Prophecies in your nightmares 

Of you dragged through the mud 

These things you have done 

Will haunt you forever 

No salt can protect you 

Your lifeline’s been severed

Burn the Witch Art

You want to start a fire

This relationship has become a tinderbox 

A spark is all it needs



Words spilled starting fires

And you fan the flames 

It’s doing well but I burn brighter 


I explode with a fierceness you never expected 

Blistered lips 

From the words I speak 

There is no water here and my fire catches the wind

Turning our lives to ashes

There are no survivors here

I Put a Spell on You


I put a spell on you
Because you’re mine

Biding my time
Waiting for opportunity
Embracing my destiny

I put a spell on you
Because you’re mine

I weave my magic
When the time is right
My possession
Object of my attention

I put a spell on you
Because you’re mine

I’ll take my time
Have some fun
Before I set you free

I put a spell on you
You are mine
