Deep Down South

Mysterious-Lady-in-RedWay down south,

In southern lands,

Where serpents swim,

I gave my heart to a lady in red,

Dripping and bleeding, bright cerise,

She gave me her russets eyes,

To fall into,

Her burgundy mouth to taste,

Silky and wet,

A soft place to bury my shame,

She took to the woods,

My heart in her hands,

I follow the path of blood on the land,

Past red dahlia’s and dead tree trunks,

Sticks scratch and shred,

Vines creep around my legs,

The wind howls and shrieks,

My mind screams, my heart beseeches,

I follow her into the woods,

Sightless, without sound,

My destiny awaits, in this sheltered place,

Deep down south, in southern lands,

I gave my heart to a lady in red.
