Horror, Hillbillies, and Humor

Deception Is Your Art

After we have talked and kissed,
Take a look at what you’ve missed
Look how diamonds become your eyes
While I’m a diamond in the skies
When you knock on Heaven’s door
Don’t think I’ll love you anymore
I never thought it would come to this
It went crazy when we kissed
I only longed for your embrace
Stealing silk and stealing lace
Don’t adorn your blackened heart
For deception is your only art…
