your last victim

as the moon lends us its light
your mouth is trembling softly
your breath is warm and your eyes are closed
and I wonder what could scare you
tell me of your last victim
did he cry out in pain
and did he scream for mercy
when he saw blood in your eyes

you’re in my arms tonight
your silence make me restless
the angels will fall from grace for you
and your story will go untold
tell me of your last victim
was it quick or slow and painful
did you lick your lips and savour it
did you feel pleasure or regret

and in my room unspoken nights
tobacco burns for candle light
you give me love and paradise
i run my fingers and cross your back
tell me of your last victim
were you out at sea or on dry land
were you marching on to victory
and tell me what will come of me

you talk too much
come closer now
there is no past or future here
there’s only you and me
and what could be better
than us together
and the things that we whisper
and our secrets my lover

the dawn is rising mournfully
on your silver knife and on your golden words
this one cuts through flesh and bone
and this one cuts through hearts
tell me of your last victim
were his eyes as free as western skies
did he kick and shout or go peacefully
did he beg for life or just your sigh
