Bare Handed Is I

Bare Handed Is I
I had the combs
The man in black and white
see what I have in mind
bare handed is I
Our cheesecloth gauntlets neat and sweet
The throats of my wrist
brave Lilly is me
I'm only happy when it rains
without a cloud in the sky
He and I
I'm only happy in these chains
all that I can do is cry
why he his holding me tight
He highlights the best of me
run in the dark so free with he
I'm only happy when I bleed
This he can see
His one and only is me
He let's me know I'm alive
even in the night I do cry
I'm only happy when I need
just myself to survive
Just to get by in this darken life
A thousand unclean cells between us
I'm only happy when I dream
of my long lost love is You my boo
I'm only happy when I'm scream
for a Heaven that never came
Oh what the pain my soul is in
I'm only happy when I'm alone
at war with my own one and only
Dark wings of the unmiraculous is me
I'm only happy when I've known
that life is just pain of rain i'm in
Holding on to your words
in the ravens wind
I'm only happy when I'm lost in you my boo
I can't find my way in the light of day
I'm only happy when I've crossed
the path of disarray
I'm only happy when I see
death is my way to your cold heart
I know I'll be free running in the dark
With the man of the dark
I have no doubt because doubt is what I sought
I'm only happy when I'm told
I am Your Dark Queen
I've gone insane
I'm only happy when I hold
all these thoughts in my lost soul
I'm only happy when I dream
of you my boo
I go out of my mind playing around with You
I'm only happy when I'm in too deep
I'm only happy when it's me you cannot find
I will make You only blind

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
