Mercury

You’ve poisoned me

I know you’ve filled your kisses with it

Instead of heat I’m chilled to the bone

I can feel it slide into all the chambers of my heart

It’s all a lie

Every whispered word

Shout at me

There the only words I believe to be true

 

Mercury

My blood is silver and now I am your treasure

Mercury

Perch me on a throne. Tie me to it

Mercury

Tell me do my tears still taste salty?

Mercury

 

My love was simple and chaste

Until I met you

Your lips were red hot and they set me on fire

I let it consume me

My body weak

My senses drunk

But it wasn’t enough for you

 

Mercury

My blood is silver and now I am your treasure

Mercury

Perch me on a throne. Tie me to it

Mercury

Tell me do my tears still taste salty?

Mercury

 

It was all so sudden

You poured it in your mouth

Lined your teeth with it

But did not dare swallow it

You kissed me deeper than I had ever known

I drank it all down

I’d do anything just to have another taste

And you knew that all too well…

 

Mercury

My blood is silver and now I am your treasure

Mercury

Perch me on a throne. Tie me to it

Mercury

Tell me do my tears still taste salty?

Mercury

 

A girl can’t have it all

But she can have life and breath!

I have your life

Your breath on my neck

Why would I ever need puppet strings?

Just shove me around

The End
