It starts with a catastrophe
One of personal engagement
Send the burning couple to oblivion

Eight score and eight hours fulfilled
How I long to smell the requital 
Inverted love bears a twisted thought

It's wrong to say I'd like to see you burn
So I'll wish it from afar

It's wrong to feel this way, but understand
You're the most beautiful cancer

A twisted thought gives way to calm
But calm never outsourced your gaze 
Can this unnamed wave be guilt-free?

Kindly give me one more word
Your knight in rusted armor awaits 
Will he bear the sword of recompense? 

It's wrong to know you scoffed at murder
So on the crows I hope to dine

It's wrong to count on your wands and cards
to kill this beautiful cancer
