Girl With The Raven Hair

Girl with the raven hair.

In the bleak belch of time,
Your innocence was so sweet,
Your raven hair
A flower among the weeds,
On that cold snowy night
On the bank by the sea,
Where we did first meet.

Girl with the raven hair;

Your figure cut
A sick hole in my world.
Raven hairs on white brilliant baths,
On floors, in beds:
Our trysting love
Love hushed, hushed moans
From behind closed doors.

Girl with the raven hair.

The black strands
Strings of poison
Tie a noose around my neck,
Kill everything
And all is no more;
But still the raven hair cuts
Skin and holds breath,
Keeps me lashed
To words spoken in bedrooms
Bedrooms behind the door.

Raven haired girl,
Raven hair
Pollute my mind forevermore.
