Universal Bride

It has been said, you are lethal
Yet I lust for your warm embrace.
Rumours of your gnawing evil
Cannot rival such ghostly grace.

For a last taste of your flame,
Your trap I shall ignore.
Devoted to you, my bane,
Danger I shall fear no more.

Your fire in my chest,
So pleasurful to bear,
Shall one day send me to rest.
But since when have I cared?

I savour the moment
On the road to Hades,
Stealing a last kiss
As our passion fades.

For in the end,
Nothing remains
But smoke, ashes,
And poisoned veins.

I bid you goodbye,
Trapped in your net.
My faithful bride,
My cigarette.
