Desire rides in one night

On a black horse, named Death.

He points a bony finger my way-

Suddenly I’m out of breath.

 

I walk towards him as a shadow

He takes my world away.

I am now surrounded by nothing

And standing in clay.

 

I try to touch his horse

But nothing is there.

Desire lifts the atmosphere

Then takes away the air.

 

He burns another cigarette

Then asks me for a light.

I knew I had one somewhere

But then I lost my sight.

 

I fall to the ground begging to breathe

Another lesson learned.

Trust in denied in lustful hands

Then you are burned.
