A Final Lament


Pull the walls in, wrap them up tight
Don't dare let in one spark of the light

Burrow into the black icy cold dark
Be sure to extinguish every last spark

Break all the chains, sever the ties
Exquisite pain as every hope dies

Tears scorch flesh as they roll their way down
Lonely empty cold death is all to be found

Sobs reverberate, sharp echoes rebound
Dark crimson blood is drawn by the sound

No part of this world will I ever be
A grave the escape that is left for me

Here on this day but gone on the morrow
God grant that it cause no one to sorrow

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
