The Lady In Black

As I lay asleep 'pon my bed in the dead of night,
I hear her whispers - her voice calling out to me.
I know she'll come again to share her dark delight,
The lady in black - and I'll share her sweet misery.

With eyes like the rain she starts to pull me in -
She takes my hand and with cold hands she grips.
I feel her touch and I can resist no more, I give in;
Pleading once more for a taste of her tainted lips..

Silent, she leads me on - out into the night,
And in the moonlight our dreams take flight.
The skies pour but my lady she doesn't care -
In the cold rain we share our little nightmare..

I start to tremble, caught in her cold embrace.
I open my eyes; in the dim light I see her face -
Beautiful eyes that shall haunt me forevermore,
For the lady in black, she's just worth dying for..

She smiles; then with her hands she pulls me closer,
And softly she whispers words I'll always remember.
Then with the rush of a cold wind she's gone, I shiver;
Alone in the rain, waiting, lost in a dream without her...

Random Verses (11)

Another day, and I just got old;
I'm in bed feeling rather cold.
If ever I had a magical charm,
I'd wish for you to keep me warm.

The trials of the heart are the hardest to bear -
They worry you though you try not to care.
But 'tis human nature in the pursuit of love,
To do bad things if the heart's just had enough!

If there was a moment I could fore'er keep,
From memories hidden somewhere deep,
It'd be the day we met - your smile so sweet;
How you charmed me in ways e'er so discreet.

I used to dream in colours blue,
But as of late when I'm lying in bed,
I only see dreams in colours red -
Red means I'm thinking of you.

As I tread the path of dreams tonight once more,
Thru the passages in my mind I enter that open door.
Inside you'll be there to help be drown my sorrow,
And we'll hide away till morning comes tomorrow.

Perched on the terrace beneath the shade of a blue night,
I stare out into the darkness and pretend I'm not alone.
Your voice echoes in my head and I'd call you on the phone,
But I've got theories to learn and passages to read tonight.

So I guess I'll close my eyes and think of you again,
And in my mind's eye I'll stare at that picture of you.
As minutes turn to hours I'll get by and pretend,
That I'm not alone; that I was somewhere with you.

The silence fills my mind with emotions in shades red & blue;
Thoughts in my mind that seem to float round images of you.
Red for the passion that you stir within this tired heart;
Blue for the emptiness in knowing that we are so far apart!

From This Heart Painted Black

As I lie down to sleep, I know she's crying;
With every breath I take she weeps for me.
I close my eyes, and try to get to sleeping,
But in the darkness I feel her surround me.

Valentine's Day is just around the corner -
We should be laughing; deeply in love.
But things have changed as I've grown older,
This troubled heart, it's just had enough.

I wish I could hold you for one last time;
Sing to you of times you've had with me.
I know it's cruel, but tell me is it a crime,
To walk where this heart of mine takes me?

I don't want to leave, or tell you goodbye;
I'll take it all back and change this ending.
But now you've bled this heart all but dry,
And all it yearns for is a new beginning.

I won't ever forget you; yes I never will -
Everything I do will remind me of you.
I pray someday if my heart's beating still,
It will find it's way back... back to you.
