I could have waited
But I think I was done with that
I felt emboldened
And wanted to test out
The effects of hexes
Both ancient and darker than night
So I searched for them
The oldest of flowers
And I found how
To make a heart yours

I met you a merchant
All curled hair and cat like
Amongst the market stalls
Reflecting my dark might
Naively I thought of this
As beautiful symmetry
I was unconcerned
With the forces at work
Set my heart on your heart
And delivered my curse

The delicate dark light
On my fingertips glistening
As if kissed by morning mists
I was full of purpose
I formed an oval
'Tween my thumb and my fingers
Between the skin there formed
The most beautiful and fragile of webs
Shining and pure
Pressed them into your skin
With the warmth that I felt
As you fell under my spell

And now the spidery criss cross
Of sparkling webs has been
Laid across my chest
They hang from my ribs and
Every time I think of us
Your slow toffee smile
Your hands in my dress
The webs in my chest
They shiver and I catch my breath
Again

And I'm barely sleeping
I've been having ludicrous dreams of you
Stroking me softly
As we fall asleep
And outside the snow
On the cathedral is glistening
As the birds squeal their dying calls
Desperately listening
For the moment when you will crack
And say that you've missed me
For the ungodly feelings
That will explode within me
And I've talked about those times
Doubts that you have used me
Cause I will know for sure
That you have always loved me
