I lay him down to sleep,
The screams, the cry, the desperation of eye,
They all fade away in smoke.
She watched as he gave away,
For a lesser pain, the heaven await.
She smiled, as if to infer my deed.
Judging nay, an understanding sought.
Drop by drop as Lucifer grew,
Her lips so numb, her eyes, the dew.
And yet she smiled,
As she drew nigher,
To search the kiss of innocence.
She averred right a sweller truth
As he watched in avarice the wisdom elude
Sins precede our human race
‘For in lord we trust
And sins he made
Beyond the ken of mortal say
Is the hell we make but hell it is
Thou hast the love for hate there is.’
Oh! She drew so close
Her shimmering self.
Every breath, a distant dream.
The wear of day and her mellow whisper
The crimson lips kiss the slumber.
Aah! I smile, ages been.
She seemed like someone I could love
