Silent Evermore



Somehow he’d forgotten

His lover, truly rotten

Surprised the passion they’d begotten

Lay dead upon the floor.


She’d warned him of her sorrow

Still he thought her he could borrow

Thought she’d still be there tomorrow

Dropped her heart upon the floor.


But most amusing was his eyes

When she took him by surprise

And cut out his tongue of lies

With the shards along the floor.


Mute in her chambers, numb

His hands left without their thumbs

Can only listen as she hums

Chained up upon the floor.


His cruelty provoked hers,

Now he is silenced,

Evermore
