Darkness, My Bride


Standing alone with my nose turned up
Sitting awake in my bed
Pouring a glass; a half empty cup
Pouring my glass till I’m dead

Staying still half empty for life
And keeping to the dark
As if darkness was my wife
My heart displays her mark

Never growing sick of her
Although she likes to bait
And underneath my skin does stir
But with her I placed my fate

Look down the aisle and see my bride
Look down to see my death
Look down to see one hell of a ride
While I’m taking my last breath

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
