Devil’s Perfume

Listen to Devil’s Perfume by Richard Charles Stevens

Listen to Gunmetal Black by Varien

Hello darkness
The shadows serve you well
Indeed my heaven is the hell that you propose
Hello darkness
Kiss my lips and steal my right to tell
Unto the chime of knell
Forever to disclose

Farewell flesh
I bid you the most timely of adieu
Undressed you leave me little left to lose
My brittle bones exposed
No sticks and stones need overthrow
For their committal is my oath to quest anew

Hello darkness
Seep into the cracks and fade me black
Will take far more than ranged attacks to make me blue
Deep beneath the husk
No longer torn from dawn through dusk
For I entrust these eyes without a face to you

Taste divine decay
As you replace my light with shade
While I retrace my steps to where affright last mused
Try well as I might
I cannot fear
When death’s caress is so sincere
That final breath aside
I die to seek resume

Hello darkness
Unacquainted solitude and gloom
For I know well of who’s done what and why to whom
Hereby my tomb is crowded room
Where slew of broken flowers bloomed
Arose composed empower to illuminate the view
And now they tower
From parched earth
To grasp the moon

Hello darkness
Seep into the cracks and fade me black
Will take far more than ranged attacks to make me blue
Deep beneath the husk
No longer torn from dawn through dusk
For I entrust these eyes without a face to you

Hello darkness
Put your hands around my throat and squeeze
Choke me
Grope me
Do such as you please
Need not be provoked
To drop devotedly to knees
And leave it up to your declare
The air I breathe

Farewell flesh
Hath ne’er been blessed so telling an adieu
Undressed I am as leisured as I’m true
The shadows serve me well
Indeed my heaven is the hell compelled unto
Through the never
To forevermore resume
Hello darkness
In whichever form you loom
I’m a devil for the scent of your perfume
