What if I gave you a lock of my heart?
Would you pull it around like it was string?
Or tickle it to hear my laughter?
Would you treasure it like pharaoh’s gold
Or be blind to the forevers in your hand?
What if you carved that pound of flesh?
Is there anything more to give than that?
Will your tongue be my ankh or noose?
The weight of words is lighter than feathers
Tipping the scales between love and death
Are we bound to be star crossed lovers?
Sipping poison from stolen kisses
By any other name, we’d be
I’d hunt the earth for your broken pieces
My tears would glue you back together
If you’d only take my hand again
I am so weary from being Ophelia drowning
As you whisper to skulls and weigh the fates
Empires rise and fall at our feet
For our love is one of swords and asps
Anubis can take us together again
In the halls of Ma’at, I’ll still scream my love
The truth of us is our beautiful lies
