Poem: In The Morning (I’ll Be A Ghost)

We all know the story
One way or another
Of starcrossed lovers, soulmates
Blessed and cursed to find each other


It’s an old wife’s tale
An old story told at night
Two halves of a whole
And when together they shine bright


Blessed be the boys time can’t capture
Cursed by the girls left behind
There’s a sin under the skin
And a darkness buried deep you can’t find


Its you and me
Me and you
One plus one
Equals two


It’s the law of the universe
But the worlds turned on its head
In the realm of bent halos
Even angels fear to tread


In the nights they steal kisses
In the dark where its less a lie
And more a secret
And when you wake up you can’t break a promise
That never really existed


Wouldn’t it be funny
If the angel did do wrong
Had a soft spot
For the hell raising boy
Gave him a chance when
There wasn’t one


And the demon did the right thing
Took his life before they could fall
Love is poison
This is rapture
And they got the story backwards


Wouldn’t it be funny
If you prayed for the devil
Because he’s got a mouth like sin
But hair like a halo


Wouldn’t it be funny
If I’m a demon
And I’m the one that falls
Because you’re so pretty
But so wrong


And its star crossed lovers
An old fairytale
Cursed and blessed to
Love and die


But there’s a darkness in his eyes
There’s a sin beneath her skin
The light won’t last the night
The feathers of your wings
Burned and bloody
Halos bent torn


The demon falls for an angel
And the angel falls with him
So the demon finds some grace


And it sounds so pretty
To fall together
But wouldn’t you rather
Never fall at all


In the morning you wake
And he’s


Of time long gone
And he thinks of you
You think of him
And you both realize you’re better off
